Hi, I'm Haruhisa, It's been around 10 years since I moved to Niigata city. I love this place and would be happy to introduce you not only to the best typical places, but also to secret spots that locals love to hang out at.

I love making new friends. Several of my favorite experiences in the past have been being involved in international exchange programs and running a shared house where I've been able to make lots of friends and share our travel stories. It's always great hearing about other people's travel experiences and telling my own stories.

Normally, I work as a freelance project manager, but recently, I've been offering my place as a place to stay in for a lot of travelers from Asian and European countries, taking them around the city. I'm glad Voyagin has given me a chance to get further involved in the travel community and showcase Niigata.

    Haru! Thank you do much for everything!! Ultra cheerful, kind, and easygoing host (; He showed me around, took me to beautiful gardens and was blown away ( almost literally by the winter wind ) gazing out at the Sea of Japan!!

    He picked me and my friend up at the train station, we cooked for him and his six roommates! He is a very nice guy, good luck with your dream: your guest house will be awesome!

    Haru is a friendly, easygoing nice guy with a great sense of humor and interest in everything. It was great to hang out with him! And the geek house (although not the cleanest nest on the earth) is a cultural experience in itself! don't miss out ;)
