About this community

Growing out of a LinkedIn based group Founded in 2008, Business in Japan is the world's largest networking group for English-speaking professionals looking to do business in, with, and/or related to Japan. There are around 82,500 members with about 1/3 based in Japan, the rest outside looking in - interested!

Also host to Japan's most unique general networking events, Business in Japan connects professionals both offline and online in meaningful and constructive ways to further Business in Japan, or just a professional life in or related to Japan.

As COVID has generally settled into part of 'normal life', and the Japanese Government have lifted all restrictions, BIJ will aim to do and to support others doing Japan & Business related in-person events.

BIJ will still run some events online on Clubhouse, LinkedIn Live Audio or other platforms, and we are interested in partnering with anyone running Japan related events offline/in-person, online or hybrid.

Please join Business In Japan Group on LinkedIn if you are not yet a member. Also founded in 2009 as a Sub-Group to #Business In Japan #Community on #LinkedIn for a long time (so invisible!, thanks LinkedIn), join the Japan Events (Online & In-Person) LinkedIn group too - if you have #JAPAN related #online, #offline / #inperson or hybrid #Events - you are welcome to post there.
