I came to Japan at the year of 2000 to work as a software engineer, and kept continuing my career in the IT and banking industry until the year of 2011. I started a new hobby in photography as soon as I arrive in Japan due to the beauty of this country.

Meanwhile having a side job as a performing magician, I switched my career to media industry working together with some friends to produce hundreds of episodes of TV show in introducing Japan's tourism to Indonesian audience throughout the year of 2013 to 2018.

With my combined background in entertainment, knowledge in Japan tourism, and real-life experience in living in Japan, I started to guide tours since 2016 because I found out this is such a great job!
It's a great joy to see my guests enjoy their trip to Japan!

Book me and you might get a combo package of a tour guide who can entertain you with his magic tricks and take good shots of your trips as well :-)
