Investor FAQs

What is Japan Premium?
The expression Japan Premium originally meant the punitively high interest rates imposed on Japanese financial institutions after the Japanese bubble burst because the entire Japanese banking industry’s creditworthiness was in doubt. We use this phrase in a totally different context. We believe Japan has a lot to offer to the world that is still largely unknown on the global stage, from state-of-the-art home appliances to breathtakingly beautiful folk art works to the Japanese spirit of wholehearted hospitality. We consider it our corporate mission to introduce these underappreciated Japanese gems to the world. This is what we mean by the phrase Japan Premium.
