Making a Leap into Japan? Our Offices Can Help...

Starting your own business is becoming more and more popular. Do you have an idea and want to make a successful business in Japan but not sure where to start?  The following will give you some tips to leap ahead:

Office Recommendations

Hard to concentrate at home? Too easily distracted in a trendy co-working space and worried about security? Tired of fighting for a table near a plug in a coffee shop? Budget tight but need your own space to say “this is mine”.

If you find yourself in any of the above circumstances, we recommend you find a serviced office. There are so many types of serviced offices and flexible workspaces available you’ll easily find something which fits your needs. However, when it comes to selecting an office there should be no reason to compromise to get something which suits your budget:

Distance from the local transport links: Location is key when it comes to choosing an workspace. No point in finding a great office if you have to spend hours getting there. Having an office near major local transport links should be one of your first considerations.

Meeting rooms: If meeting clients, suppliers and potential employees in a professional environment is important to you, choose an office where you can easily use on-site meeting rooms. Many low-cost providers won’t offer this facility. Which means you’ll be back to the coffee shop when you should be impressing your visitors.

Telephone / mail handling: When you start your own business, you want to focus on your sales activity but there are so many detailed things to take care of. If you select a serviced office with reception facility, the staff will take care of the calls and mails for you. You can avoid missing calls when you are talking with your clients or out of the office. You can also leverage secretarial services to send mails and print documents.

English service: Many Japanese people are not so good or confident when it comes to speaking English. Additionally many services are only designed for local users. Therefore it’s critical that you find a serviced office with English service to help you set-up and run your business smoothly.

Prestigious business address: In Japan it’s a typical business conversation to talk about office location when you exchange the business card. And if your office address is prestigious, your client might say “Oh, you have your office in good location. How did you come here from there?” A high-profile business address will help you to be considered as a reliable business partner.

Lucky number: there are several numbers which are well known as “lucky numbers”, like ‘1’, ‘7’ and ‘8’. It might be good for you to have these numbers in your business address or office number.
