Expertise Built on Experience

Japanese Accounting & Taxes

We know all the in's & out's of sales in Japan and the US because we've had hands on experience in our 30+ years. If you were to open your own shop, you would need to file the appropriate taxes in Japan, but with us, there is no need for that.

Product Claims in Japan

Japan has its own laws for product claims. Don't leave the future of your brand to auto-generated translations. Even native Japanese speakers don't always get it right without sales experience. There are many cases the translated claims are illegal in Japan and the shops selling those products have been forced to close.

Ingredient Classification Differences

Your product might be classified as a health food in the US, but it might also be considered a medical substance or even an illegal drug in Japan. We will work together with you to choose the right products and protect you from these kinds of legal issues.

Food Safety throughout the delivery chain

To ensure the food safety at every step of the delivery chain, our products are stored in a US FDA & TSA approved warehouse. Then, they are delivered to Japan by our long-time partner Yamato that has been certified by CTPAT & IATA. In Japan, the laws about food safety, hygiene, and returned goods are very strict and we know those laws thoroughly.
