In 2008, I decided to learn Japanese and in 2010 after graduating from the Japanese school Kudan Institute, I realized that I wanted to work in a job where I could use Japanese and Spanish. After coming back from Japan, the dream of creating a bridge between Japan and Spain began to appear in my head, so in 2011, while I was studying tourism, I made free tours for Valencia to my japanese friends.
In 2013, after graduating from a tourism junior college, I worked for years as a translator / interpreter of Japanese-Spanish in many fields and in different companies, photovoltaic energy companies and catering companies.
In 2017, I came back to Spain with the intention of using everything I had learned so far and with the renewed desire to connect Japan with Spain. Also I got my Official Tourist Guide License.
In 2018, I created Orenji with the intention of connecting Spain with Japan and to show tourists how exciting is Spain, and above all, Valencia. But after a while being a Tourist Guide and interpreter for Japanese and Spanish, I realized that it was not enough. So I decided that I would not only focus on Japanese or Spanish-speaking people, but that I would show people from all over the world, whether in Spanish, Japanese or English, my precious C. Valenciana and Spain.
In september 2018 fui I was the Tourist Guide in charge of the Fam Trip organized by the Valencian Agency of Tourism to some of the most important Japanese Travel Agencies.

Orenji was born from the idea of creating a bridge between Japan and Spain. So, we started doing guided tours for japanese people as well as translatations and interpretation services (Japanese-Spanish-Japanese).
But we liked so much to show our land, that we decided to transmit to all the people of the world how exciting Valencia and Spain are.
