Japanese know-how

With about 350 Japanese companies such as Hitachi, Yakult, Yamaha and Mitsubishi,  and one of the largest Japanese expat communities in the Amsterdam Area, you can rely on dedicated Japanese-speaking service providers such as tax advisors, estate agents and employment lawyers to help you with all your needs. The fact that the Japanese community here is so large means that there are many services and locations tailored to Japanese expats, such as specialised medical care, Japanese schools and the Okura hotel. 

In addition, the Amsterdam Area offers a variety of Japanese cultural events, for example the Cherry Blossom Festival, the J-Dream Cup football tournament and the Japan Festival. 

Access to new markets, yet never far away from home

Europe’s best-rated airport, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, is just around the corner and boasts direct flights to three Japanese cities (Tokyo, Osaka and Fukuoka). At the same time, almost all important European destinations are a mere two hours away by airplane, car or train.
