Sekino Consulting LLC

Sekino Consulting LLC provides assistance to overseas companies and global corporations that are seeking to enter the Japanese Market for the first time. We do so by offering comprehensive services that will facilitate initial entry into the Japanese Market and then provide ongoing support once market entry has been achieved.

●Initial Market Entry
- Sekino Consulting will identify potential business opportunities for global corporations looking to enter the Japanese market for the first time. Our strength is that the business opportunities we identify are selected exclusively based on the needs of the global corporation and our extensive research. We then provide full on-the-ground support and service should the global corporation decide to send a business mission to Japan. The range of these services includes scheduling of meetings with key personnel in the target companies, full language interpreting services (Japanese and English), and if necessary hotel and airport transfers. We are at your service.

● Business Portal Services
- Our Business Portal Services are for those global corporations that begin operations in Japan subsequent to successful entry. Sekino Consulting will act as a representative of the global corporation in Japan to ensure the course of business runs smoothly. When problems do arise between global corporations and Japanese corporations, often the root cause of these problems is either linguistic or cultural misunderstandings. As your Business Portal our role is to ensure that the business conducted between global corporations and Japanese corporations is free of these type of issues.

● English Education
- English is the language of Global Business and with over 30 years of experience we are experts in this field. We teach students to communicate clearly and confidently so that they can carry out the professional duties required of them. We take a serious approach to education and expect the same from our students. Our students soon realize that even though the classes may be serious, they are also very enjoyable, which promotes confidence and independence. Cross-cultural workshops are also available so that global business people can learn how to work with their Japanese business partners.
