Owner of Edit Japan Co., Ltd.
Studied in high school in Canada and joined a local creative dance group. Became a leading role of anti-violence and anti-racism dance, bus-toured around east Canada and performed mainly for young kids at reformatory.
Came back to Japan and became a international sales man of electronic components (B2B) and visited many countries.
During 8 years of B2B business, there were 2 turning points – meeting with a local bag maker in Spain who wanted to seek opportunity for B2C business in Japan. The other one is a successful experience of meeting up a celebrity in person without any connection to directly introduce hi-end agricultural product that my friend makes (it was Jane Birkin who was the perfect icon and influencer of natural and healthy life).
Those 2 elements had me decide to change my career to B2C marketing and started a website that introduces Japanese culture and products with my other friends after work. One day a company got interested in this private project and now itbecomes a business project with financial back-up from this company (Eight-one) in Nov 2015.
