Japanese Trading Company

Innovative Trade Business

We search out products from all over the world that are not yet available in Japan and import them to Japan. We actively use crowdfunding, a sales method with great potential. Furthermore, we try to develop sales to reach as many customers as possible through wholesale sales to mass retailers and E-commerce websites.


Products from around the world have been crowdfunded and sold, garnering a lot of support.
We provide you a way to market your product through crowdfunding. We can help you test-market, build a track record, and brand your product. Crowdfunding will expand the potential of your product.

International Trade Fairs

We exhibit at the Tokyo Gift Show (TIGS), the largest international trade fair in Japan. At the Tokyo Gift Show, companies from various fields exhibit their new products and inventive goods. Real trade fairs are still the best way to quickly make people aware of products that have not yet been sold in Japan.
