About Me

Hello. My name is Momoko Amemiya.
I am currently a journalist studying European Business and Economic Policies at Louvain School of Management in the advanced master’s program. I compare Europe and Japan, and write articles on my observations and thoughts. I am an ambassador for OneYoung World (Japanese representative for Manchester 2022).

After graduating from Waseda University’s School of Political Science and Economics in Japan, I started as an editorial assistant at Forbes JAPAN, and then joined Nikkei Inc. Nikkei is a major Japanese business newspaper that has now acquired the FT in 2015.
As a journalist, I covered job hunting and venture businesses. I was later seconded to Nikkei Business Publications (now Nikkei BP) as a book editor. I have worked with Japanese business executives and professors on over 60 business books. And I have made the Japanese translations of “Blue Chip Kids” and “Introduction to the SDGs” best sellers with over 100,000 copies sold.
While working, I obtained a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from NUCB Business School. In August 2022, I resigned Nikkei, became independent, and relocated to Belgium.

In my blog, I will write about my activities and the issues in Japan as perceived by Japanese youth.
