Japan is one of the developed states of the Asian region with an ancient and rich history and traditions. Japan is an island state located in the Pacific Ocean east of the Sea of Japan, China, North and South Korea, and Russia. As in any developed country where the market economy prevails, Japan has a national trade register containing information about legal entities registered in Japan. An extract from the commercial register of Japan allows you to assess the state of the company at the time of the request and make a decision on cooperation, conclude a contract and be confident in long-term, productive relationships in a particular area of business. Japan is an attractive destination for investors because the country's economy is very strong and holds a leading position in the world. Japan's wages are the highest in the world. A confident and strong economy allows Japan to enter the G20 and continue to develop the country.
Japan does not belong to offshore zones and is not included in the black lists of the OECD, the Central Bank of the Russian Federation and the European Union. Japan is among the countries that follow the information exchange measures. The Japanese Ministry of Justice is responsible for maintaining the commercial register and providing company information. When an electronic document is requested, its content is very scarce. You will receive information about the company name, registration address and registration number. For more detailed data, the request is made directly in Japan, with personal contact.
