Why Japan?

Untapped Potential of the Japanese Market

When discussing global economic powerhouses and markets, Japan is often mentioned as one of the most difficult to succeed in.

This is due to the unique business and consumer culture that many companies and brands do not understand.

However, there remains huge potential for businesses to thrive in Japan, due to the following 3 reasons…

1. High Disposable Income

Consumer spending accounts for around 53-55% of Japan’s annual GDP.

2. Love for Foreign Brands

Japan’s consumer culture is largely built on adopting foreign brands and infusing them with local elements.

3. Stable Place to Do Business

Commitments are upheld and payments are timely. People are well-mannered, and returns rarely occur.

4. Loyal Customers

Japanese people are more comfortable with the familiar. Satisfied customers will stay loyal, repeat purchases and recommend brands to their friends and family.

Based on the above, the conclusion is simple:
Successfully entering the Japanese market is immensely lucrative.
However, without understanding the local culture and consumer behavior,
it’s challenging for foreign brands to make any sort of impact.

On the flip side, successful marketing and branding strategies set to appeal to local Japanese consumers can result in
mass adoptionproduct virality and rapid surge in sales.

That’s what we at IROX do best, and exactly what you can expect by partnering with us!

Challenges
of the Japan Market

1. Language Barrier

Japanese language is filled with specific nuances. It does not always translate literally or fluidly from another language.

This can be a difficult hurdle to overcome in both B2B and B2C scenarios, as it demands proficiency in vastly different aspects of the Japanese language.

Our Solution

We translate sales, marketing materials as well as other materials such as manuals. We also provide customer support in Japanese for your clients and customers.

Our team’s experienced translators and localisers well-versed in amplifying your brand’s sales message and materials in a localized manner creates instant connection with potential clients and consumers alike.

2. Unique Business Culture

Conducting business in Japan is a challenge for the uninitiated, full of courtesies and customs. A failure to understand the culture can result in a loss of business opportunities.

Our Solution

We have pre-existing retail partner and other networks build with good standing over 20 years, ready for you to tap in. 

As seasoned entrepreneurs in Japan, we know how to navigate this perilous process with minimal complications. Opening the doors to the Japan market is lot simpler with our assistance!

3. Unique Consumer Habits

Due to a unique cultural upbringing, Japanese consumers behave differently compared to their global counterparts – with different inclinations to trends. In order to appeal to the local market, a customized marketing and branding strategy is necessary.

Our Solution

We suggest and put forth the most appropriate branding and marketing mix for your brand and product, optimised for Japan’s demography and market segment.

As one of the leading marketing, branding, distribution and ecommerce agencies in Japan, we have the expertise to tune and enhance your brand to stand out distinctly and attract Japanese consumers while maintaining its original essence.
