My name is Hadrien, with an H yes!

When I am not discussing about life, you will find me playing the yoyo, swimming, or going into nature for hikes, observing insects and animals. Come and have talk! I am sure we will have many stories to share!
Hi! My name is Rabbi Ul Saleh but you can just call me Rabeea. I’m from Pakistan and moved to Japan about a year ago.

I love psychology, music (every type!), theatre, languages, literature… Well really, my interests are all over the place so tell me about yours! I’d say there’s about a 100% chance I also like or will be interested in the things you love!

Hi, I’m Matt and I come from small country in Europe, called Estonia. I lived in London, UK for 5 years before moving to Japan with my partner. I first came to Japan 4 years ago and suddenly fell in love with the place, the food and the people. As a technophile I find myself often in Akihabara electronics shops and market to find ideas. I have strong passion for robotic systems and I used to teach the topic in the university. With hobbies outside the electronics, I love travelling and taking photos of nature and animals. In london I found wild parakeets that I went to feed every week and who often sat on my head and hands whilst crunching the shells of peanuts. I hope to make a lot of new friends here in Japan and to learn more about the mystical culture. Feel free to meet up with me in LanCul.
