Incorporate a Japanese godo kaisha "GK" company

Incorporate a GK godo kaisha Japanese LLC company.

Many Japanese are unaware of godo kaishas (GKs), even though Apple, Amazon, and many other well-known US companies do business in Japan as GKs for US tax reasons (a GK godo kaisha is a ‘check the box’ pass-through entity for US tax purposes).
