Do you want to enter Japan market? One of the easiest ways is to buy a company in Japan. 


On June 18th 2024, U.S. investment fund Blackstone announced that it will acquire Infocom, the company behind the digital manga distribution site "Mecha Comic." The total acquisition amount is 275.6 billion yen. Blackstone will conduct a public tender offer at 6,060 yen per share and will also purchase approximately 57% of Infocom's shares from Teijin, which currently holds that stake.


After the corona pandemic, there are many businesses going bankrupt or civil rehabilitation proceedings in Japan.


One of the biggest fashion companies called RENOWN (already owned by a Chinese company) filed for bankruptcy, White Bear - a major travel agency and also Air Asia LCC was out of business in 2020.


It is usually our recommendation that you buy a company from bankruptcy or equivalent.  Why? It is because you can acquire a company at a very good price and the debt is normally reduced by 90%.


We have had some cases where the owners want to sell their company at 1JPY (less than 10 cent).


Of course, this is not for somebody who do not understand the business. There are reasons why these companies were not doing well and the owner needed to give up. 


How we help? If you want to buy, we find target companies to buy. If you want to sell, we find a company which may be interested in investing in your company. We work with our accountant and legal firms which can carry out due diligence.


We share some examples of the companies you can or could buy. In this section, we focus on hotels and ryokans (inn), hostels often with hot springs.


If you are interested, you can contact us any time.


Please note that all of these hotels are not necessarily for sales. Some hotels found already new owners.
