Taking interactive media to the next level

One day back in 1999, Neeraj Jhanji was going to Daikanyama for lunch and he wondered if any of his friends were in the neighborhood and would like to join him. But how to contact them all? It occurred to Jhanji that it would be ideal if the mobile phone would tell him where his friends are. The idea was to create a mobile location sharing service to keep in touch with your friends so you could always know where they are.
Before long, that bright spark became the launching pad for Jhanji's own company, ImaHima Inc (www.imaHima.com), which is now one of Japan's most innovative new media companies. However, Jhanji, 33, has taken ImaHima far beyond the social messaging service.

Jhanji worked as the e-commerce strategy consultant with Accenture prior to founding ImaHima in late 1999.

Neeraj Jhanji was walking to a neighborhood train station in Tokyo in 1999 when he wondered if any of his friends were nearby. He looked at his mobile phone and thought "the phone knows where I am, it knows where my friends are, so why doesn't it tell me?". In that serendipitous moment, Neeraj's life was changed. He immediately built and launched "imaHima", a revolutionary mobile service that allowed users to share their location and status with their friends.
