Keigo Fukugaki

Architect, Designer, Entrepeneur, BnA株式会社 in Tokyo Japan

Founder and Designer of Honeywedding.jp

Japanese-American Born and raised in California, I moved to Tokyo for the first time when I was 26 to live with the girl of my dreams and two years later, we got married. However, what I found out while I was planning for our wedding was that wedding Japan sucked. In 2014, I left my day job as an architect to start an internet start-up that could change the boring "cookie-cutter" wedding scene in Japan. Then now also working on the accommodation project collaborating with contemporary art field.
