Japan Trading Company 2009/8/4 17:45
Hi, I am working in a Singapore based company and we need to import some toys from Japan. However, the Japan companies we are dealing with can only sell it to Japan domestic market and do not sell them overseas.

However, we are advised to engage a Japan trading company (or agent) to buy the toys from these companies and then export to Singapore. What I heard that these types of trading company is known as 'sogo shosha' or something.

I have been searching through the website but can't find any Japan trading companies. Can anyone help and recommend a good and cheap Japan trading company we can use?

Unless you can be a really big (huge) customer, the chance is extremely slim that sogo shosha would be interested in the business with you.
I'd recommend to contact JETRO (Japan External Trade Organization), they have Business Matching Database and they might be able to find some trading companies who are specialized/interested in exporting toys.
