HIROAKI WATANABE


I was born in September 1974 in Tokyo as a half Japanese and half Indonesian.
I graduated from Aoyama Gakuin University, majored in International Politics, Economics and Business.

While studying at university, I completed the course of "Isshinjuku" (2nd and 3rd year's admission).

It featured on Politics, Economics, and Business, establised by Kenichi Ohmae, who is what is called "Mr. Strategy" worldwide, sought out as a public speaker and management consultant.

In 1996, I studied abroad and completed the short-term language program at Merdeka University in Malang, East Jawa Indonesia.

I also admitted at the Sophia University in Japan, post-graduate program, department of Foreign Language and International Relations.

When I was 24 years old, I founded my company SAMSUL Co., Ltd., internet advertising agency in Tokyo.

Now it also operates the E-Commerce web site of cardboard "Order-box.com", established in 2001.

I served several board/advisory positions including D-PLANET('03-08), JV with ERGO BRAINS, listed ad company in Japan, MAGELLAN REOSRTS & TRUST('05-), and so on.

I also served as a member of several councils held by district of Shinjuku, Tokyo.

I live in Tokyo with my wife and two children.
In the near future, I want to be a bridge between Japanese and Indonesian.
