About Us

Thank you for visiting my website! My name is Jiro, and I am a videographer based in Tokyo.

Born in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan, I had the opportunity to live in London for a year during high school. In the midst of my university studies, I spent a year in Italy, immersing myself in the study of photography. These experiences enabled me to speak English and a bit of Italian. I am a graduate of the Philosophy Department at Waseda University in Tokyo. Prior to my current career, I worked in web design and computer programming until 2013.

Although I enjoyed web development, I found my true passion in video production, leading me to establish my own video production company in 2014. Since then, I have had the privilege of working with clients from over 20 different countries.

My dream is to connect with people globally through video production. I aim to explore and celebrate the unique aspects of various cultures and hope to contribute, even in a small way, to building a peaceful and prosperous society for everyone.

“He was quick to react with creative and professional ideas and always maintained communication and delivery. Were anyone to ask for videography skills in Japan or in Asia, I would surely recommend him :)”
