I wanted to become the type of person to bring energy to my town.

I'm Kenta Fukuda, from Kumamoto, Chuo University, my hobby is going out drinking with friends. 
My favorite places are the neighborhood soba noodle shop, Japanese diner, and public bath. I love traveling and want to go to Cuba, Argentina, Hong Kong, and Shikoku.

Q: Your relationship to community building?

After coming to Tokyo from Kumamoto for university, I was very impressed with the city and am always experiencing new things here. At the same time, I felt very strongly about back home in Kumamoto.

Kumamoto is where I became who I am, the source of my energy, a place full of memories and friends. All the experiences and relationships I had there made me realize the importance of place and community.

Q: How did you come to join Cafe Company?

I entered as a new grad straight out of university.

As a student, I was interested in urban planning, and I wanted to become the type of person to bring energy to my town. But how could I do that? Become a politician? A consultant? A government employee? It was when I was working part-time in a restaurant that I realized the power food to bring people together and make a neighborhood better. It was then that I decided to make my career in the food and restaurant industry.

I then came across Cafe Company, and really loved the concept of community building through cafes.


I went to open our new WIRED TOKYO in Taiwan.

Q: What are you doing now?

I work at WIRED TOKYO 1999 in Shibuya.

Every day, we have people coming in from all over Japan and from all over the world to Shibuya, to this epicenter of Tokyo. There's a big mix of different cultures, different values, all coming together to form a unique community. Every day is different, and there's really no other place in then world like Shibuya.

Q: Done any traveling recently?

Taiwan. I went there to open our new WIRED TOKYO Taiwan and help support and train the staff there. It was only for two weeks, but made a lot of great connections with both the staff and regular customers in Taiwan.


Q: What does community mean to you?

It's the source of all our energy.

Q: A word for those thinking of joining Cafe Company?

Come on and help us create a fun community all over the world!
