The implementation of ethic was innovated from limited ritual activities and evolved continuously following the development of society in social, tourism, business or other service related aspects. The OMN and THK based services had similar purposes, which was to establish non-profit relation implicitly and explicitly evolved with profit oriented motives. The focus of this paper was on how the OMN and THK ethics were implemented in Japan and Bali, including the global impact in the world interaction, communication and business. The paper was based on limited literatures like books, online articles in the internet, scientific discourses, religious readings in Bali, including tourism pamphlets from various tourism companies, hotel, bank, including author’s eight years empirical journey when living in Japan, and many others. Key findings in the research was the implementation of ethic, culture, OMN and THK were getting global and had profit orientated motive, due to tight competition in business promotion.
