Direct Selling

Establishing an office in Japan will allow you to enter the Japanese market and have direct contact with customers and possible partners. There are different types of offices which have various investment and manpower requirements, but none of them will allow you to open a bank account in their own name, for example. Finally, the procedures will differ depending on the type of office you are thinking of opening.

Understanding your needs is an important step when considering what type of business is the most appropriate for you.
