Masayo

I was born and grew up in Himeji, a small city. I left Himeji when I entered the University in Yokohama. Then I studied English to work with people in the world in the future. Even though I left Himeji, I couldn’t forget my childhood. When I was a small child, a bike was a magic tool. I could go to where I had never been. I could go far away by bike. New adventures always began when I rode a bike, but…After I grew up, I rode a bike only to go to school, office etc…It was not an exciting thing any more…Even I have already grown up, I want to be excited. Oh! I can make myself excited! Why don’t you go adventure with me?
