Actually I visited Rental office space to meet with a client.
As you can see, this is very small space (11 square meters) and hourly rental fee is about 600 yen.
After I paid rental fee, I can know address of this office space. Operator of this space is not there. Door is not locked with key. So I can enter the room and stay there by due time.
So the operator does not need to hire employee to operate this business.
Operator of this rental office space is renting this room from owner.
According to realtor’s website, monthly rental fee of this room is 55,000 yen.
Assumed that the number of customers are 5 per a day.
600 yen * 5 customers * 30 days = 90,000 yen.
90,000 yen – 55,000 = 45,000 yen.
Though amount of profit is small, your work to manage this rental office space is very easy.
You just inform customers of this address. And if the customer violates the contract, he can charge additional fee.
(By credit card)
Of course, you need to install internet, electricity, water. But it will be small amount.
Starting a business in Japan and Idea
You may hope to sell services or goods to residents of Japan. However you may not be able to determine what kind of business you should start.
Because you can not know what services, goods are popular and its sales price in Japan.
So I would like to provide such information in English language.
One of relatively easy business to start (Of course, you need to make some effort) will be to sale something via internet (Amazon or Yahoo Japan) to general public.
If you can find price gap between your home country and Japan, you will be able to send the item to Japan and find customers.
In that case you will hope to know information about the number of sold items and its sales price.
Unfortunately, we can not know accurate number of sold items.
However depending on published information, we can guess such amount.
You can use this website.
In Japan, there is famous website named Yahoo Japan Shopping.
It is like Amazon. Persons can purchase several items via internet.
According to today’s rank, the most sold item is Mixed Nuts.
Source of picture. yahoo Japan shopping
Weight is 850 gram and it includes four kinds of nuts.
Sales price is 1580 yen including shipping cost to customers.
(Generally, shipping cost will be 300 yen)
The number of review from customers is about 17,000. So this shop might sell about 17,000 items until now.
17000 customers * 1,580 yen = 26.8 million yen will be sales amount.
Cashew Nuts is made in India etc.
Though this item includes Almond, Walnut, Macademia nuts, I hope to purchase only Cashew Nuts.
If you or your friend are producing Cashew Nuts, you will sale them to Japan.
You will know amount of necessary cost to ship them to Japan.
If you try to sell small amount, you will not make any profit.
(Owing to shipping cost)
So you need to send large amount at once.
In the case of Cashew nuts, expiration date will be for several month and it is good.
You should not sell raw fish etc. at first.
When you start this kind of business, assist of resident of Japan should be necessary.
In that case , you can contact with me.
Business Idea and application software in Japan.
You may have already made concrete business idea.
But you hesitate to pay a lot of money to start the business. In that case, you and other person (contributor. “Mr.C”) incorporate a company.Then, you and / or Mr.C become director of the company.
Then, when the company goes well, you and Mr.C receives dividend.In order to take this option, legal and tax support is necessary.
However, I am willing to assist you.
Or some of you want to start a business in somewhere.But you do not have any idea of what kind of business you can start.
So, in this page, I would like to introduce business in Japan and you can refer to it. You may be able to start the business in Japan or other country.
When people look for restaurant, they will use website and within the website, they will search according to location, price etc.
However when they click “search”, there are too many information and can not know whether it is real nice restaurant or not.
Website of too many information is not easy to use (Ah, it may apply to my website. I need to modify it).
But in the case of this TERIYAKI, persons called “curator” visit the restaurant and take enough pictures and write nice report.
Persons who often use several restaurant can become curator.
(this website also provide profile of curator. Information who wrote the report is also important to find nice restaurant)
Curators already know good restaurants. So, when potential customers look at this website, they can find information only taken by curators.
In this business, existence of curator is important. Ordinary persons will trust customer experience provided by ordinary persons (not conflict of interest).
And in the case of this website, in order to sort out by some conditions, visitors need to pay 400 yen per a month.
How do you use this idea ?
Will you make this kind of website in English language for tourists in Japan or in your home country ?
If famous website provide too much information, you can make website that provide only important information.
And by using curator, you can collect trustworthy information (short customer report may not be sufficient).
Some of you have enough knowledge to make this kind of website.
So, you and other person (who can contact me to start this business. I will arrange legal process to protect your right) can collect actual information and write report.
Now, you can make this kind of website in English language.
Several months later, many foreign tourist will pay monthly membership fee.
