My name is Kai and I’m a high school student in Kyoto, Japan and Davis, California. I was born and raised as a bilingual and bicultural citizen of both nations, and currently do part-time freelance translation and writing, utilizing my bilingualism and deep understanding of both cultures. I am a full fledged travel enthusiast and have been all across Asia and the world, as well as 40 of the 47 prefectures in Japan. I love visiting new places and seeing what each location has to offer, and I especially love walking or running the town, or hiking in the mountains and forests nearby. I’ve been a resident of Kyoto since birth and to this day the sheer beauty of the city awes me. I love sharing my city with avid travelers, especially when we come upon the well kept secrets of the city. Outside of travel, I love music, skiing, history, and cars.
