The A Week in Tokyo series started back in 2007 - the purpose was to help me keep a log of my life and to share what life is like in Japan with folks around the world.
2007 was when I started up my company Mirai Inc and if you read through the series, you will be able to observe how I built my business over the years in Japan and how the expansion of the company has changed my life.
Of late, my company has started to become busier as we gain more clients and TV work. Its only the beginning of April as I write this and so much change has already happened this year.
TV production makes up the bulk of our income and I currently have two TV shows - Culture Japan and Check Time (which I will write about soon!). I'm currently working with two Japanese electronics manufacturers to introduce another TV show which starts this Summer.
After spending much time of late with my comrade Aki Takanori (Good Smile Company CEO), I came to the conclusion that I'm not agressive enough in running my business. He is only a year older than me and has achieved so much. I feel that I started off late in life - I started to regain my life after I discovered Japanese culture but I wish I has done so at an earlier age.
As I get older, my goals become clear but I dont have much time left to complete them. This is why I continue to encourage young folks out there to seek and discover what their passion is and set goals in life before its too late - but thats a full subject that I need to write up about soon ^^;
Anyway, I've missed out on a few of these A Week in Tokyo posts but want to catch up as I dont want to leave anymore voids in my life.
The last time I made a post was beginning of October 2011 - this post continues and covers most of October and a wee bit of November. First photo - out n about on the Yamanote line heading to a meeting.
