Based in Tokyo, home to animation and endless innovations, AKA Virtual began its activities in March 2021. With its cutting-edge in-house technology, AKA enables creators and brands to interact with fans through virtual avatars in the digital world. The company specializes in 3D character and content creation whilst letting these characters play in AR (augmented reality) and MR (mixed reality) or even concerts and talk shows fully in 3D.
Message from Jia Shen, CEO of Aka Virtual
Dear Eastwood Country Club and JI Charity Golf Cup Supporters,
First of all I will like to express my gratitude and appreciation to Eastwood Country Club for allowing us to partner in this charity golf event. To all golfers, you may have met Hitoshi (Tsutsumi), my trusted friend, colleague and an avid golfer, at past events. Here at AKA Virtual, we enable creators and brands to bring their characters to life in the virtual space. Using our proprietary in-house software, we put these beloved characters in virtual reality, live shows, and even onto the streets next to you. We want to help these virtual creators respond to trends, redefine social media influence, and bring more entertainment to the world.
Our latest and biggest partner is Sega, which entrusted us to produce two live shows for one of their mobile game characters, Popona, who is from Phantasy Star 2: New Genesis. We produced her 3D live debut on YouTube and subsequently helped bring her to her fans in an offline fanmeet with live performances and photograph sessions.
Advancements in such productions are what’s really exciting and make us proud of what we do. We look forward to forming deeper connections with you!

JI Charity Golf Cup Beneficiaries
In addition to our usual beneficiary, Mirai no Mori, which seeks to empower marginalized youth in the outdoors, June’s JI Charity Golf Cup will support Common Grace, a Hawaii-based charity that helps elementary school children not get “left behind” by providing them with high school age Sempai mentors. The 3,000 yen or more collected on our group day on June 17th will go directly and fully to Common Grace. Being at the club to support the event in person also helps Jarman continue its monthly donations to Mirai no Mori.
