Global Cellphone in Japan

If you are using global cellphone, you may think you can use it in Japan.
It is not true.

There are few cellphone can be used in Japan.
Others can't be used.
Please check your cell carrier's site and whether your cell is usable in Japan.
In the case of Vodafone, you have to sign up for Vodafone Passport.
Otherwise you will have a nightmare and get your Japanese customerss in trouble.

The Japanese hesitates to say "No" in any business ocasion.
They normally use "we will think it." instead
If you hear this word, the deal may not be completed.
If they say " Let me talk with my boss.", it is a kind of good signal.
If they start to explain that the approval system takes long., it means they want to do business.
This is important sign from the Japanese during business meeting.

Drink and Golf
Mood:  don't ask
Topic: Business

Japanese Sales way

There are many sales person in Japan.
The old sales way is drinking and golfing.
In daytime, they make quotations and send bills to their clients.
After 3 o'clock they visit their customers and chat with them then invite to go to drink.
This entertainment keep the in their hands.
On weekend, the customers are invited to go golfing.
They will bet their score each other but the host never win.
It was a typical business manner in Japan.

This type of sales method doesn't work on new type of business companies, especially IT company.
They never have time for drinking and golfing.

Sales method is going to change.

Hot summer in Japan
Mood:  cool
Topic: Business

Survival way in hot Japan

It has been more than 30 degree in daytime in Tokyo for 19 continuous days.
It is very unusual to have such hot summer in July.
There is an article for business person about survival way in Tokyo.
Feeling temperature changes around 2 degree taking off your jacket.
And you can feel better with 2 more degree cooler taking off your tie.
It is good sense to wear fashionable shirt without a tie carrying a jacket.
Japanese government is promoting to take off a tie.

Good luck!!

Monthly allowance
Mood:  blue
Topic: Business

Monthly allowance of Business man

Recent survey reported that average monthly allowance of business man is 38300 Yen.
It is the third lowest result since they started survey in 1979.
They spend 5400 Yen for cell phone bill.
650 Yen is used for lunch in average.
There is no data for business woman.
But I believe business woman has much allowance and spend more money for many goods.

Broadband connection
Mood:  sad
Topic: Business
The broadband connection spreads to 15 million lines in Japan.

During your stay in your hotel, you may get a broadband Internet access.

Good hotel - 100%
Business hotel Less than 50%
Ryokan Almost zero.

If you need Internet connection, confirm the travel agency whether your hotel has BB service.
