Ha! It will take more than English assistance to attract businesses. For starters, you'll have to throw out the xenophobic attitudes. But with people like that aso at the helm, I don't think things will change anytime soon.

It's possible to have a Buisness in Japan, but frankly not really worth it. Had a few, never cracked the foreigner wall. Now in my wife's name with a box of stamps these are proceeding well. So frustrating untill you realise you are just not trusted and Buisness wise not welcome. Can't believe I pay tax to support an office that boasts of English help.

Japan must have all their laws in English.
