Invest Japan Business Support Center (IBSC)

What is an IBSC?

IBSCs (Invest Japan Business Support Centers) support foreign and foreign-affiliated companies to enter the Japanese market and establish bases after they come to Japan. In addition, we provide services such as increasing the number of employees, developing business in rural areas, and establishing bases in order to expand the business of foreign-affiliated companies already operating in Japan.
