Project YUI is currently a private group in Tokyo that specializes in business consulting and marketing to support and develop new businesses in regional Japan. Japan is currently facing several crucial problems affecting the society throughout. One is the major population shift towards megacities such as Tokyo and Osaka. Second is the aging society with a low birthrate which is accelerating leading to vast decline in population. Third is the midterm cultural shift towards western lifestyle.
At Project YUI, we respect our origin, culture, nature, tradition, wisdom, and love. We feel the importance to protect and support regions where those still exist. We want to lead and generate businesses so that people can enjoy their lifestyle in the regions without worrying about losing jobs or shutting down businesses due to population decline. We are producers and consultants to connect regions and cities and foreign people and businesses to generate new opportunities. Our goal is for prosperous regions not just financially but we want to see heart warming smiles on people's faces. YUI means, unite, connect, help each other, look after one another, give, serve. This is an old Japanese tradition in the regions where people gathered to help each other when someone needed help in their neighborhood which thoughts have been long gone in the urban cities.
If you are interested in opening new business in Japan or seeking for a business partner who have regional connections which is essential to enter the local market, please feel free to contact us. Recently, large firms, foreign investors and business owners seems to be interested in participating in the development of casino resorts in Yokohama. Others are interested in the powder snow “JAPOW” in Hakuba or tourist spots in Hokkaido. Some are interested in buying a vacation home in Karuizawa. We have many friends and business partners throughout Japan.
There may be a small instance where you may have interest in regional produce or some handmade traditional goods and would like to buy or learn from that artist. We may be able to hook you up with that key person and also create a new scheme so it will become some kind of new business. So whatever is the reason of interest in Japan's regions, we would like to hear from you. Although we are not a big team or under any large firm, we have access to all sorts of organizations, companies (large and small), local government, local businesses, etc. Feel free to contact us.
