Enter MKUltraman


elcome, wayward traveler, to the wide and eclectic world of me, Matt, aka MKUltraman. Here, bizarre innovations, persistent creativity, and non-standard strategic visions converge in a singularity of strangely compelling practices. My personal and professional journeys merged long ago, combining a relentless pursuit fringe experiences & cultures bearing exploration.

That all-encompassing journey has taken me many places, physical, digital, and beyond. It’s a not exactly a narrow path I walk, but it is less taken than others. MKUltraman is the culmination of years of critical experience developing navigation systems, which has solidified around 3 central themes.

Information Technology

With modern technologies, I often find myself spearheading initiatives to bring groundbreaking solutions to the masses. My expertise in blockchain project management, AI implementations, and web design puts me in a useful position to quickly ideate and execute on innovations. I’ve lead teams through complex projects as much as I have solo’d market development, always with an eye on future trends and practical applications.

Real Estate

As The Akiya Hunter, I have been researching, advising, and assisting rural real estate acquisition in Japan for over 7 years. The opportunities outside of Japan’s major metro areas is staggering, from personal property to communal ryokan, and so much more.

Through Digital Springs, I delve into the untapped potential of Japan’s rural real estate and bleeding edge IT. My efforts combine passion with practicality, shaping a new vision for rural real estate through the vetting of vacant properties and countryside communities. My main goal is to efficiently breathe new life into these regions, advocating for sustainable development and modern living solutions.  


Independent music is what got me here in the first place, and the blood of the scene pulses through my veins. I coordinate streams, events, and festivals that celebrate the diversity and depth of underground music through Kaala MusicSimilarly, I’ve leveraged multiple AIs in creating JP Vinyl, a vinyl subscription box service for enthusiastic collectors of Japan’s wide range of domestic artists.

Through these musical efforts and more, I aim to bridge between cultures, highlighting the unique flavors of Japan’s music landscape to a global audience.



KUltraman represents a tapestry of diverse experiences and deep commitment to each of the communities I’m involved in. And that’s an important distinction to make: be it IT, real estate, entertainment, or any of the other themes I’m generally interested in, my curiosity is stoked by the potential for all of that to positively effect and improve the circumstances for all involved. 

My journey is about creating impact, fostering connections, and exploring the endless possibilities that lie within these dynamic fields. Synthesize them into one, and you’ll find me there waiting for you.
