How does your business succeed in Japan?

How does your business succeed in Japan?
How does your business succeed in Japan?

Based on your experience in supporting Join Japan customers, what are the characteristics of enterprises successfully cooperating with Japan?


23 years ago, for 7 years I worked at the Ukrainian embassy in Japan, and I can say that in general, the Japanese conduct business very carefully and thoughtfully, they rarely make decisions in a short period of time.


I have experience working in a Japanese trading company, and I agree that the Japanese devote a lot of time to collective discussions before making a decision. On the one hand, such caution seems reasonable, but at the same time it seems that they are rather slow.


In other words, we can conclude that when working with Japanese companies it is important to act gradually, measuredly and without the unnecessary haste.


After working for 7 years at the embassy, ​​I took up the advice of foreign IT companies wishing to enter the Japanese market. As an example, I was headhunting Japanese CEOs for Silicon Valley IT firms. From experience, I can say that the interaction between the IT industries in Japan and abroad has progressed quite quickly and successfully.


Agree with you. I have also had to work many times to develop relations between foreign start-up companies and foundations, as well as investors from Japan.


However, in 2017, the situation changed, and there were more cases when foreign funds and companies allocated funds for the implementation of goods, technologies, and food products made in Japan.


I agree. It seems that interest in products made in Japan has appeared quite recently. Foreigners are increasingly investing in food, restaurant business and the production of alcohol in the Land of the Rising Sun.


Goods and foodstuffs produced in the Japanese hinterland are presented to foreigners as something completely new, in connection with which Japanese products are often purchased in large quantities.

Moreover, more and more foreigners are trying to export organics from Japan.


Recently, Japan has been accepting more and more foreign tourists who are interested not only in Tokyo and Kyoto, but also in other regions. In addition, the national cuisine of the country of centenarians continues to attract connoisseurs from around the world.


Thanks to the development of social networks and a YouTube video platform, it becomes possible to convey the charm of provincial life to the masses, which is an undeniable plus.


Depopulation served as an incentive for Japan to actively develop business relations with other countries.


Fascinated by Japanese products, foreigners and Japanese aspiring to the development of foreign business complement each other perfectly, and in recent years there have been more and more examples of their interaction.


It is nice to see that recently more and more foreign companies that have only recently discovered the attractiveness of Japan are already finding business partners not only among large IT enterprises, but also among manufacturers that have long been engaged in crafts in the provincial regions of the country.


Let us make every effort to ensure that overseas enterprises join Japan with Join Japan!


Definitely! ♪♪♪

Our policy

By entering international markets, in particular uncharted trade territories (the so-called “blue ocean” territories), we seek to deepen relations with regional institutions and organizations, while adhering to the laws and regulations of each country and maintaining trade transparency.

Our task is to demonstrate the technologies, goods, and services of the CIS countries to Japan, and for this purpose we in every possible way support companies engaged in Japanese expansion, successfully assisting in the implementation of their projects. 

During business transactions between partners from different countries, there are often misunderstandings due to cultural differences and different rules of business etiquette. Lack of experience in conducting international trade often leads to confusion and loss of control over the situation.

In regions where Japanese firms have a rather weak sphere of influence, there are many enterprises that do not even consider cooperation with a foreign market.

At first glance, it may seem that these are precautionary measures taken to reduce the risks of failure, but it is the fear of competition and loss to the opponent that prevents such enterprises from developing properly in the international trade arena. Moreover, in such situations, it is the pioneer firms that make the most profit.

For more than 15 years of work, the Join Japan team has managed to work with more than 300 companies, exchanging knowledge and reaching new heights. Based on our experience, we try to develop a business plan that suggests the idea that “failure almost always means a retreat”. Thus, we consider it necessary to think over the strategy in detail even at the stage when it is possible to prevent an undesirable outcome, and in no case, we concentrate on the possibility of failure.

Our firm does its job responsibly, going deeper into the task at hand and the desired outcome, thus helping to choose the most favorable direction for Japanese expansion and finding investors.
