Upon relocating to Detroit, Akane worked with both F.B.T. Productions and 54 Sound, the former studio of Eminem, in Ferndale, MI. While at 54 Sound, Akane became familiar with Vintage King Audio (whose headquarters were right next door) and, as fate would have it, Vintage King was looking to expand internationally, particularly into the Asian market. Akane was a natural fit thanks to not just her nationality, but also her vast knowledge of audio recording. She began working for Vintage King in the fall of 2005 and continues to oversee sales in Japan and Asia.
I was hesitant to purchase from overseas at first. Since I have a "big sis," Akane, I can always ask her any advice and my hesitation was despaired. Of course, there is a dealer in Japan and gives me comfort, but some gear has to come from somewhere else. I can find rare gear at VK more than other. VK is far away physically but I feel like it's next door for me.
Thank you so much,

Thank you for your service. The customer support of Ms. Akane Nakamura has been very impressive and I am very satisfied with your service. I'm glad that I bought the Millennia STT-1 from Vintage King. Thank you!
I had a very nice business with Mrs. Akane Nakamura. Her response was very quick and polite. When I need to purchase gear in the future, I will shop from Ms. Akane at Vintage King.
Thank you again.
