Start a Japanese representative office.

A Japanese representative office might be a cost-effective office for researching the Japanese market and business in Japan. A representative office in Japan might even be useful for managing Japanese distributors and resellers. A Japanese representative office could be useful for customer service for companies in very specific circumstances (such as companies needing a small local Japanese customer support team to support customers in Japan under a global agreement). But, and it’s a big but, a representative office in Japan cannot be a sales office, cannot be involved in negotiating orders, cannot be involved in invoicing customers, cannot be involved in fulfilling orders, and cannot be involved in collecting payments.
