Doubling down in Japan

Today, Iím excited to announce the next phase of our long term investment and presence in Japan: a new office in Shibuya, Tokyo, opening in 2019, that will allow us to double the size of our team here. We are also announcing an initiative, working with Minna No Code, to help bring computer science education to more than two million students across Japan.

Do Japanese welcome a larger physical presence of Google?

After Google took over Yahoo Japan's search results they pretty well dominate the market. They do a lot of market specific projects that seem to be appreciated. My man on the street impression would tend toward the affirmative.
