Governmental Grants and Supports

The Japanese government prepares several grants and financial supports that do
not need to be refunded to small and medium size businesses affected by corona
virus. Those grants and supports are available for all businesses including
businesses operated by non-Japanese owners or directors.
All explanations and necessary documents to apply those grants and supports are
basically written in Japanese. I think it is difficult for international business people

Message from Attorney


In Hokkaido, where we live, a number of natural disasters and new types of infectious diseases have caused great damage to the lives of people and the management of small and medium-sized businesses over the past four years.

Furthermore, not only the lives and businesses of individual person but also the local communities and economies have been in decline.
For example, in 2015, JR Hidaka line was heavily damaged by a bomb low pressure storm and it is said that JR Hidaka line will be abolished soon.
In August 2017, three typhoons had landed in Hokkaido. Due to these typhoons, JR line and High ways were cut off in Tokachi area and local communities and economies in the area were tremendously damaged.
In September 2018, Hokkaido Iburi earthquake hit in Hokkaido. Due to this big earthquake, some people died because of large scale landslides and as well as many people became in difficulty of life because of lost power in the whole Hokkaido region.

In 2020, the spread of the new type of corona virus infection has killed many people, has a major negative impact on human health and the economy and is still going while a state of emergency has been declared by the government.

Like these, looking at Hokkaido alone, people’s lives and the economy have been damaged almost every year by natural disasters. In particular, because the new corona virus infection is affecting not only Japan but also the rest of the world, Hokkaido’s economy and peoples’ livelihood that are heavily depended on tourism and the export of agriculture and fisheries products are seriously being damaged and existences of local communities are in peril.

Therefore, we aim to help those who are affected by these natural disasters and new type infections such as new corona virus infection by providing legal services and assistances to those affected people and businesses.

In particular, as an English speaking lawyer, I am honored to be of service to foreign business owners
We hope that we can be of some help to those who come to this page.
