  • Profile description
  • Hello all together!

    My name is Kevin Sid Mertens, I'm German and was born 07.06.1988.
    I'm living in Japan since around 6 years now, my Japanese could be better but I can understand and have easy conversations.
    I was married and had some different jobs already here. But now I'm divorced and try to start my new life here in Japan, because Japan grew on me and I would like to live here.

    It would be nice to meet new people and cooperate with others to help each other.
    Right now I'm looking for a place to stay in exchange for work.
    I hope that I can meet new nice people and I'm very thankful for help!

    Thank you in advance,

    Kevin Sid Mertens
