Hey, I'm Akira!
Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan · Member since April 2012

Akira Uchimura is a Chilean-Japanese born in Costa Rica. He likes to think big and dreams about making the Nikkei Youth Network into a global community to change the world into a better place through “Kizuna”. At the age of 24, he came to Japan as a Nippon Foundation Nikkei Scholar. After graduating, he made four trips around the world on Peace Boat, became the coordinator for the Nippon Foundation Nikkei Scholarship, and is now the executive director of Nikkei Youth Network. He loves food, graphic design and events where people share cool innovative ideas.
