Steven, I was in the Import/Export business for a couple of years and dealt lightly in Japan. If I may, unless you are already in that business and know your way around, you may want to take a different tact: Find out what is needed there, and go after the producers that have that product line, here. I can tell you from personal experience that there are thousands of products that people would love to export to Japan - but the Japanese don't want the vast majority of them.

Moreover, are you familiar with the Japanese import and distribution systems. Customs can be a nightmare. and as for the distribution system, the vast majority is controlled by a small group of tightly held businesses and families, very much like the mafia! Very, very tough to penetrate.

I am not saying don't do what you want to do. I am saying, go into it with your eyes open.

Again, if you are already in the business, I apologize for anything that sounds demeaning or insulting.
