newsninja, you answered my questions, but have you run your own company? I think many of the guys you mentioned would agree with Japan being a tough place to do new biz. My opinion.

OK. I know Robert at Oak Lawn, which industry were dominated by foreigners, which was TV shopping. ValueCommerce? You gotta be kidding. Tell me the price at IPO and now. Brian and the gang. Linc Media, who owns this, I will not even mention. J-Seed, the only one that is successful, run by Jeff, but that is again not competing against the Japanese. I am glad you mentioned these. If you do know them, then I am sure I have met you. But how well do you know the owners of these companies? None of these really targeted the Japanese, except Oak Lawn, which filled a niche at that time. Linc Media and J-Seed targeting Japanese at the beginning? That is nonsense. I wonder if Linc even owns BIOS anymore.

newsninja, please name the 7 who specialize in Japan entry. I know a lot of ones that failed. And if it is an entrepreneur's paradise, why do you even need them? Also, please name a business that was started by a foreigner that did not directly compete with a Japanese business. I mean one that did not specialize in targeting foreigners or foreign businesses.

First of all, the title is ridiculous. It definitely is not a paradise here. newsninja, you seem to say "Follow the rules and do your homework and things will work." Well, you forgot to mention, "Speak Japanese perfectly, but not enough to intimidate the Japanese, have friends you grew up with in high places, don't get into any business that the Japanese are already engaging in or one they can take away later, have a lot of cash and patience, if your business doesn't take off right away, be patient and make sure you have a permanent or spousal visa, etc." Yes, paradise. Oh, I forgot, "And stay entrepreneurial!"

gogogo, well then you really don't understand the Japanese market. I don't understand why people do a lot of things, but I accept that they are important. Infrared is also an important feature that iPhone doesn't have.

Don't you know that one of CEO's talents is the ability to lie? They were top-notch hustlers.
