Tabinaka(Fun Group) Inc. (HQ: Shibuya-ku Tokyo, Japan; CEO and President: Kenji Miki), operating the “Tabinaka” business, an online platform for overseas tours and experiences, hereby announces that it has acquired “PT.

  • Address: Jln sempidi dalung,banjar uma gunung no:11, sempidi badung bali

Context for overseas acquisition

We have set up a subsidiary overseas to cater to demand for Tabinaka (Japanese term for “during your trip”) on a real-time basis. While there are many companies that can meet the demands that arise before travel, such as reservations for flights or accommodation, there are few services that can meet the needs that arise during travel. We believe that it is imperative to have local subsidiaries and develop a position to provide appropriate solutions to meet the diversifying demands of travellers.

Statement by Kenji Miki, CEO and President of Tabinaka

To realise our mission statement, “simplify ways to access sightseeing resources worldwide”, we need to work and cooperate with the local people where we have a presence. We will dramatically change the way travellers spend their time in their destinations, by creating genuine encounters with the people who are passionate and care greatly about their homes.

Statement by I WAYAN PUTRA ARISTANA, Head of Indonesia

Bali has many tourist sites including Ubud and Lembongan, and I hope to share these wonderful charms to more travellers in conjunction with our partnership with Tabinka.

Profile of Kenji Miki, CEO and President of Tabinaka

After graduating from high school, Kenji visited the United States and discovered the iPhone that had been gaining popularity. He started his own business at the age of 19 and acted as an agent selling iPhones to Softbank in Japan. Seeking to build a new and more global business, he visited Thailand where he lost all his possessions after a street robbery. He was in Phuket when he started to guide Japanese tourists which led to the idea of Tabinaka.
