With a love for Japan and its culture, Yoyo Mung (蒙嘉慧) and husband Ekin Cheng (鄭伊健) have been spending an increasing amount of time there. The couple held their wedding in Tokyo in 2013, and were house hunting before the pandemic started with the intention of eventually retiring in Japan. Slowly transitioning away from acting, Yoyo started her own company in Fukuoka, Japan last year.
Backed by Ekin’s million-dollar investment, Yoyo’s real estate company provides a full range of services, including property management, immigration, and education consulting. To cater towards Hong Kongers who are interested in settling down in Fukuoka, consultations are also offered in Cantonese.
Choosing Fukuoka as the prime location for her company, Yoyo explained that the reason behind it was simple – Fukuoka is her favorite vacation spot. She exclaimed, “I believe there’s great potential for future development here. I’m really happy to share and exchange information through online platforms. Thank you for everyone’s interest and support!”
After one year of operation, the business is faring quite well despite the challenges of the pandemic. However, Yoyo believes in continuously expanding her customer base by marketing the company’s services. During Lunar New Year, Yoyo distributed business cards to family and friends along with holiday gifts. Promoting her business on social media, Yoyo has been actively sharing her favorite foods and snacks from Fukuoka, as well as interviewing local residents.
Despite Yoyo’s new company, she and Ekin are expected to split their time in Japan and Hong Kong as the couple had just built their HK$10 million-dollar home in Yuen Long last summer.
