Opening small business in Japan. 2008/4/22 22:31
Hello I just started an internet retail business in California and want to bring my store to Japan, Ive lived in Hyogo pref and Osaka for a year working part-time and studying at language school so I know the language, culture, etc. The only obstacle i have is the immigration system, trying to find the right visa and figuring out the local business laws, any help would be greatly appreciated thankyou.

"The business concerned is maintained with the scale of employing at least 2 full-time employees in Japan (Japanese nationals or permanent residents)".
