Ken Arbour – President

Arbour (425x640)

Hello, I’m Ken Arbour, president of Century 21 SKY Realty, and I would like to introduce you to finest group of professionals in Tokyo-my staff. O.K., I’m biased, but once you get to know us, I’m sure you’ll agree. First, let me say a little about myself.

I established Century 21 SKY Realty in 1985 with two friends whose first initials represent the S and Y in SKY. Then a lady entered the picture. My wife, Noriko Kagami, and I took over the business in 1989, and have since been working to build it into a successful enterprise. Nonetheless, we found time to start a family, and we now have three beautiful daughters.

I’m Canadian, and I came to Japan in 1982 while working with the Canadian Forest Industry. I studied Asian History at McGill University and earned a Masters of Urban Planning at the University of British Columbia.

Noriko Kagami Arbour – Director and Sales Manager


Noriko Kagami is my business partner, my wife, the mother of my three daughters and an excellent swimmer who held the 100-meter freestyle record at Yamanashi Prefecture High School for many years.

Even more important, for our business, Noriko has earned Century 21′s Centurion sales rank for a Japan record 17 times. She is well connected and well respected in Tokyo’s real estate industry.

Noriko graduated from Musashi Art University and worked as a fashion designer before getting into real estate. She loves to cook, and to stay in shape, she swims 2K everyday.

Masanori Takeda – Office Leasing and Commercial Sales Manager, Licensed Broker


What do you say about a man who negotiated the sale of a Tokyo office property worth ¥70 billon? I can’t say enough. Without a doubt Masa, as he is known in the office, is the key member of the SKY team. He concentrates on commercial office leasing and commercial property and luxury home sales.

In a previous life, Masa was the sales manager of a large automobile dealership in Miami. He also went to school in Florida, earning his Bachelor of Science degree form Palm Beach Atlantic College.

Kiyomitsu Nakagawa – Sales Section Chief and Licensed Broker


Kiyomitsu, or “Mr. Personality” is easily our clients’ favorite agent. He focuses on residential leasing and is known to be very down to earth. Being well-liked helps when you’re as prodigious a networker as Kiyomitsu, He is said to know every agent and every property in the market.

After graduating from Osaka Business College, Kiyomitsu has traveled and spent a year in Australia. But I don’t understand how I ever hired a Hanshin Tigers fan (Go Giants, Go!)
