Kimihito Okubo lives in Tokyo. He’s married and has a 20-year-old daughter. He holds a degree in business administration from WSDA, a prestigious university in Tokyo. After many years in advertising he has developed the idea that although Japan is very avant-garde in technology, what hampers globalization in the country is the attitude of the Japanese. “Japan remains a country based on the product, definitely high quality, but lacks the strategy, a vision for these products, which must fight in an increasingly competitive market,” states Okubo. Kimihito is member of the One Young World committee. His professional experience has sparked his desire to do something for his nation.  For this reason Kimihito has set up a company called “One World” whose aims are to create international links to encourage greater exchange between Japan and the rest of the world. In addition to this, Kimihito is very busy organizing an international forum that will be held in Tokyo in 2015 for his NGO.
