Online marketing landscape in Japan?
No, Google is not the dominant search platform and Facebook is not the social website with the broadest reach in Japan. Here are a few interesting facts about online landscape in Japan :
Japan is the world’s leading digital society
90% of households have Internet access
The penetration rate of social media in Japan is 21%
Japan accounts for the 3rd most bloggers in the world with 4.9%.
As of April 2011, Mixi ranks as the most popular social network site with over 23 million subscribers and 80% of the social media market share.
By some estimates, as much as 40% of Japanese blogging is done on mobile phones. Unlike many of their Western counterparts, many bloggers in Japan shy away from politics, controversy, and barbed language. Compared with Americans, they write at less length, they write anonymously, and they write a whole lot more often.
Twitter was launched in 2006 and has been embraced far more rapidly by the Japanese mainstream as compared to the likes of Facebook,MySpace, and eBay. According to studies, 16.3 percent of Japanese web users tweet, as opposed to just 9.8 percent in the U.S. . Japan moved 3 places from 6th in 2010 to becoming the 3rd in the world for total Twitter usage in 2012 .
75% of Social Networking Sites accessed solely from Mobile
Search Engine Watch reported at the beginning of 2011 that Yahoo held around 56% market share in Japan with Google holding around 31% and Rakuten around 2.3%.
Nearly all Japanese Internet users shop online - the country has an online shopping penetration rate of 97%.
More so than anyone else in Asia, the Japanese prefer paying for goods online with their credit cards over any other form of payment method, with 70% of them saying that was the case.
Online retailing has a stronger presence in Japan than elsewhere in the region with 73.7% reach. They are also one of the region's top spenders on online overseas products, with Japanese internet users spending on average US$1,827 on international shopping sites.
Lets face it: Marketing in Japan can not only be confusing (like - flying blind) but also terribly slow and expensive. Often working with a Japan-based marketing can be a real nightmare - I know as I worked in one. Before you know it, your budget can be spent and no to little results to show for it. In other words: the problem lies in communication, cost and effectiveness. Not the best mix if you want your product to succeed on the Japanese market.
This is wht Japan-Internet-Marketing is a private initiative. I am personally supervising each and every onaline marketing.

Edith from Private Homes, Belgium
- We had worked with an agency before. It was terrible when it comes to reviewing what we paid for vs the results we got. Our niche (health supplements) is a multi-million dollar a year business here in Japan. Oscar has helped us to get a piece of that pie and uncover our true potential for us..
