Michael O'connor

Michael, who attended the University of Oregon as well as Waseda University in Tokyo, is originally from the West Coast of the US but has lived for the past 23 years in Tokyo and Shanghai. He speaks basic Chinese and speaks, reads and writes fluent Japanese. In his youth he was an actor and comedian appearing on stages throughout Japan. He has been in the business of private client business consulting for his own company since 2000, and as a result has become a familiar figure in the community. More recently, he discovered his personal passion when he expanded into creating and promoting motion pictures.

 Recently he has fallen in love the French Tuesdays concept and has joined the team in Tokyo. His hobbies include cooking, film & jogging. His considerable knowledge and understanding of the Japanese language and culture has proved to be a great asset in helping FT adapt to the unique business environment that is special to Tokyo.
