Japanese Business Culture & Manner 101

About the Speaker

Mr. Tong Cheuk Fung

Founder, WASABI Creation Pte Ltd

Business Consultant bridging businesses across Japan, Singapore, and the rest of Asia

Tong is the founder of WASABI Creation, a consulting company bridging businesses across Japan, Singapore, and other parts of Asia. He has supported Japanese companies in their businesses in Singapore, as well as helping Singapore companies in market entry to Japan. 

 

Tong started learning Japanese at 13 as a third language. At 15, during his first trip to Japan for homestay at Shizuoka, Hamamatsu, it opened his world to Japan, and the rest is history. He obtained JLPT N1 at 18, won the top prize for both "O" Level Japanese, and "AO" Level Japanese, as well as First Prize in Japanese Speech Contest Open Category when he was serving military service.

After graduation from National University of Singapore with a Chemical Engineering degree, Tong started his new life in Kyoto, Japan where he worked as a marketing engineer in a biodiesel manufacturing company. 2 years later, he joined a project management company in Osaka, where he helped in the launch of Knowledge Capital in Grand Front Osaka in Spring 2013.

 

In 2014, after spending 5 years in Japan, Tong returned to Singapore to set up WASABI Creation, for “creating awesome projects between Japan, Singapore, and the rest of Asia”. Tong’s goal is to make WASABI Creation the catalyst for creating business opportunities, developing close relationships, and explore possibilities between businesses in Asia. WASABI Creation’s mission is to spice up Asia with a sprinkle of Japan’s wonders, just like the overwhelming taste and burning sensation of the green Wasasbi. More about Tong
