Olunga joined the Japanese second division side in August 2018.

He featured for his country on Sunday when Harambee Stars came from behind to hold arch-rivals Uganda Cranes to a 1-1 draw in a thrilling friendly match at Kasarani Stadium, Nairobi.

The ‘Engineer’ (Olunga) almost won the match with a last gasp winner for Kenya, but he was denied by the post to the disappointment of the home fans.
