Citation Building for the Japanese Market

Japan can be a tough market for E-Commerce if you’re not native to the country. Here are a few of the things we’ve learned.

For the purposes of getting your information out there, Google Translate is usually sufficient. Several directories for Japan are still available in English. If you’re having trouble, start with those as your first set. While we don’t usually include global directories, it may be a good strategy if you’re having trouble with websites in native Japanese.
