After joining Hankyu Corporation, I worked in the railway and human resources departments before getting involved in startup support in 2017. I primarily focus on managing and operating FUTRWORKS, while also collaborating with startups both domestically and internationally. My goal is to make FUTRWORKS a hub for international exchange in Umeda by coordinating various aspects of its facilities.

I can’t stop being curious and adventurous about everything. Currently, I release my energy by doing Tahitian dancing on weekends. If you happen to see me on the stage wearing a beautiful tropical costume, please cheer me on. Let’s dance together! I also enjoy wearing traditional Japanese clothing and have been really enjoying a global lifestyle both personally and professionally in recent years.

I like vintage clothing that are full of culture, so I often walk around Nakazaki-cho, where there're a lot of such stores. I could also give you a tour, so please feel free to ask.

I’ve loved football since I was little so that I still play futsal almost every week. I also like experiencing new streets and cultures. Wherever I travel, whether in Japan or abroad, I just take walks with my camera. Please tell me about your hometown where you were born and raised!

I am in my first year at the company, and I am enjoying learning about startups and digital nomads every day. I want to know more about everyone and support you as best I can. I am looking forward to working with you.

I was born and raised in Osaka, so I can introduce the best things about Osaka to you. On my days off, I often travel within Kansai and visit many cafés. I’m serious but energetic, so I like watching and playing sports - especially badminton and volleyball. Please say hello if you see me around!

Manager

Nobuhide Okamoto

After joining Hanshin Electric Railway, I was mainly involved in the real estate redevelopment project in Umeda area, Osaka. And in 2016, I was transferred to Taiwan with the development of a new business. After returning to Japan in 2018, since April 2022, I have been in charge of supporting the creation of industries in Umeda.

Nobuhide Okamoto

I like all kinds of vehicles, especially ships and airplanes. I wish I could have been a pilot, but on the other end of the spectrum, I work in real estate. Still, I have a great interest in cities, and I enjoy spending time exploring and discovering new places I've never been before.
