Japan is an isolated island nation and can be a very difficult country to sell products and services into. It's not just the language, but also the way that products are marketed, sold, purchased and consumed is totally different from countries outside of Japan. And, business meetings in Japan can be incredibly stressful. Every little detail is scrutinized, which side of the table do you sit on, how do you properly give and receive business cards, who is the real decision maker in the room? If you don't know these things, your chances of doing business in Japan are slim to none, and slim just left town.
You have 3 choices to get into Japan:
1) Go it by yourself. Very challenging, especially if you are not fluent in Japanese language and business customs.
2) Partner with a company that specializes in helping companies set up an office in Japan. This can work, but it is costly, and you really need to commit to being in Japan.
3) Work with Kaizen Communications to show that you can actually sell products and services in Japan, and then once you've proven this, we can help you find the right partner in Japan.
