Japan Unlimited

How does Japan Unlimited achieve this?

The consultants at Japan Unlimited have worked and lived in Japan for many years, and are therefore well accustomed with Japanese society, culture and the Japanese way of working. They speak the language and have established a vast and diverse network through the years.

Larger companies and organisations usually have large budgets at their disposal to hire large, well-known consultancy-organisations. SMEs and smaller public organisations will often notice that the attention of these larger organisations, is more on larger ‘account’ and services is often impersonal in style

Japan Unlimited wishes to adress these shortcomings, by focusing on a personal, tailor-made, approach. For us you are not an account, you can always in direct contact with us adjust your service according to yoru needs: – At Japan Unlimited the emphasis is not just on ‘on behalf of’ but more on ‘together with’.
