Yahoo! JAPAN Establishes US-based Affiliated Company YJ America, Inc.
Yahoo Japan Corporation announced today the establishment and the start of business of its wholly-owned US-based subsidiary, YJ America, Inc. YJ America aims to support promising US start-ups and potential internet services expanding into the Japan market.
Looks like they want to encourage foreign start-up companies to come to Japan. It's not an easy market to get a foothold in, so this could certainly help.
