PicTokyo was established in 2016 when two childhood friends, both raised and grew up in California, came together in Tokyo at an “Izakaya” restaurant discussing how boring life has become ever since they started to work as a “Salarymen” in Japan.
We started PicTokyo as our weekend project to help spice up Japanese weddings providing PhotoBooth Rental Service for people to have fun, be creative, and make new connections. Just like ”プリクラ”, users can enjoy taking unlimited photos with a variety of props and backgrounds, and then printing the photos on customized templates.
After our first wedding event for a friend and the help of word of mouth marketing, PicTokyo had started receiving many positive feedbacks and were encouraged to continue their work and expand service to School, Corporate, and MICE events.
Now, we added PhotoSnap & Selfie to add more engaging products that can make any parties a BLAST!
I was born and raised in California, Los Angeles, went to University in OC studying International Business and moved to Japan in 2011.
After working in the Finance Industry for over 8 years, finally decided to go full-time with the Photo Booth Rental Business he started part- time with his childhood friend back in 2016.
