Kikuka Hatakeyama, Founder of A-ONE

A-ONE is founded in 2021 with a vision of supporting small and mid-size Japanese companies to develop their international business foundations and capabilities. I decided to expand my business to overseas companies when I learned from my friend from Spain that many overseas companies give up entering Japanese market due to the language and unique business culture in Japan.

In the initial stage of entering Japanese market, there is not enough workload to hire a person, but certain work must be carried out in order to move forward. A-ONE provides a service that allows you to request work on a project basis, or on a task basis. Allow us to assist your success in Japan!
