Welcome to Wandering Souldier

Hi, I’m Kimi Sugiyama. Welcome to Wandering Souldier, my personal platform to share travel experiences through photos and storytelling. As a passionately curious world traveler, I have an insatiable desire to explore different cultures through food, nature, people, languages, and all the adventures that come intertwined.

In 2012, I quit my job to travel around the world for a year. That trip took me across parts of North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia and drastically changed the direction of my life. Now, I live in Nagasaki, Japan where I teach English and work hard every day to improve my fluency in Japanese, writing, and photography skills. Just goes to show that when you dare to dream big, you never know where life will take you.
