7 Figure Seller Japan Mastermind - Live in Okinawa, Japan

Apr 8-10, 2024

In this 3 day in-person event you will learn exactly how you can sell an additional $300k-$965k per year in Amazon Japan



Did you know that Japan is the 4th largest Amazon Marketplace in the world? 

But virtually nobody is talking about selling in Japan!

In fact I see more podcasts devoted to selling in the UAE, Canada, and even relatively tiny marketplaces in comparison like the Netherlands and Poland than Japan!

In fact, compared to other countries, Japan has the 8th (EIGHTH) most sellers according to a recent study by Stastica. 

This means that there is a huge opportunity!

Here are the Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Start Selling in Japan N-O-W

1. Japan is the 4th biggest Amazon marketplace in the world. Here are some additional facts about Japan

    a. 4rd largest GDP in the world

    b. Population of 126 million (2021) which is DOUBLE the population of the UK

    c. Amazon.co.jp is the #1 ecommerce site in Japan with revenue of US$13 billion in 2021

    d. Ecommerce penetration rate of 74% – 93 million online shoppers in Japan

    e. Ecommerce is forecast to grow at a yearly rate of 6% in Japan


2. For the same amount of effort you apply to sell in the UK or Germany you will make a LOT MORE MONEY in Japan. In Europe VAT, regulations, and        packaging requirements are a nightmare.

    In Japan, taxes are lower (if you have to pay any at all), there are fewer regulations, and packaging requirements.  

    If you know how to sell in Japan and have the right partners in place, the effort will be lower and the ROI will be higher selling in Japan than in most              other countries.   

     In one case study Nick Katz helped a client who previously sold in Amazon.com (US) to enter the Amazon Japan marketplace.  They were able to                   generate sales of 125,150,672 yen or $965,593 in the past 14 months (from 0 to 31,334 units sold).

If you are already selling in the Amazon US/EU marketplaces you may have an advantage selling in Japan using your products. If you position and market your products the right way, you can also sell an additional high-6 figures of USD revenue per year. 


3. There’s far less competition, unsophisticated, weaker competition in Amazon Japan. 

    In terms of absolute numbers, Japan has far fewer sellers than other major marketplaces.

    Moreover the competition is a lot less sophisticated in Japan than other countries.  For example some US sellers don’t even bother to translate their                listings from English to Japanese.  They even entered ENglish into the description and in the backend.  They’re doing NOTHING to win over the Japanese      customer so the bar is set really low in Japan when you have these lazy competitors.

    Moreover, granted there are Chinese sellers in Japan but many of them are not spending time to localize their listings.  The listings clearly were targeted      at the US and they are just “throwing things on Japan”.  

    The Japanese translations are very crude, not localized to the local audience, and they usually turn away savvy Japanese customers.  

 4. You need way fewer reviews to compete in Japan

    If you have a listing with 1,000, 500 or even 100 reviews in the US and you sell in Japan, you will probably have 10x the reviews of everybody else.  

    You can bring those reviews to Japan and start right away and have more reviews than all the other sellers combined.  

    In other words you can virtually start at the top without any sales history in Japan.  

    You will have a head start against competitors from Day 1 if you have existing listings on Amazon US or EU. 

    This means higher conversions and lower PPC costs

 5. Lower PPC costs.

    If you have at least a few hundred reviews in the US, you can leverage that into lower PPC costs, even with zero sales history.   In some cases, we are          talking an average CPC as low as $0.29 per click!

 6. You don’t need to know Japanese to sell in Japan – Seller Central is in English and you can hire Japanese support (VAs) to reply to customer questions.  

 7. Lower shipping cost and faster shipping time from China factory back to Japan. It takes 30-45 days from Shanghai to to Los Angeles while it takes only 7-10 days from Shanghai to Tokyo. 

 8. You don’t need to register a company in Japan or be based in Japan to sell in Japan. 

You do need a Japanese importer of record to legally import into Japan. 

You also need to make sure your products are compliant to Japanese laws and regulations.  We will teach you how to do this at the Japan Mastermind.

 9. You don’t need VAT or GST registration in Japan.  The local equivalent is the Consumption Tax (CT) but you don’t need that until you hit roughly 10 million Yen in sales per year ($65,000 USD).

Tax rates will be much lower in Japan than other foreign marketplaces

 10. There are unique marketing channels in Japan that you can use to build an audience and make a lot of sales at low cost.  
    Line is an example.  7 Figure Sellers in Japan are building audiences of thousands of users on Line, who are super engaged when you need to ask for            reviews, offer coupon codes to boost sales, or even to collect feedback when developing a new product.


But many people are INTIMIDATED by Japan

They are intimidated by the language barrier. Japanese characters with their circles, squares and characters look totally foreign to the English speaking world.  And the language is not easy to learn – believe me… I’ve been trying for several years!

Others are intimidated by the cultural barriers. People don’t shake hands but they bow. 

They don’t use a fork and knife but use chopsticks.  

But they eat sushi with their hands!? 

They slurp ramen noodles loudly but are not allowed to stick chopsticks in their rice!?

They even have super weird Japanese cosplay costumes where guys and girls dress up in comic book character costumes. 

Doing business in Japan can be intimidating.

The Japanese consumers’ wants and desires can be very different from western consumers.  They may be more detail-oriented and quality-oriented.  

And their lifestyles and homes are different.  Patio furniture that fits large American homes won’t work in a tiny Tokyo apartment.

During the pandemic, my family and I lived for 2 and a half years in Okinawa Japan.  Over time I discovered the opportunity in selling on Amazon Japan.  Living in a rural village I was able to order anything from diapers to the latest compact projector and projector screen for our family movie nights at home.  

And I started to sell in Japan to test the waters.  I picked a product that had an opportunity in Japan and was not yet saturated (unlike in the US).  

I was able to get traction quickly and quickly sold out of the first order in a matter of a couple months!  

I realized that Amazon Japan is one of the biggest blue oceans in the Amazon marketplace in the world.  

Blue Ocean – “a new market with little competition or barriers standing in the way of innovators”

While everyone is fighting over the English speaking markets, there is a golden opportunity in Japan

  • Japan is the world’s 3rd largest economy
  • Population: 124 million 
  • In 2022, nearly 70% of the Japanese consumers shopped online in the past month, only 8% indicated that they never shopped online. (GlobalData’s 2022 Financial Services Consumer Survey)
  • Amazon is the #1 online marketplace in Japan
  • Far LESS COMPETITION – most of your competitors are not in Japan (yet)
  • PPC costs are WAY LOWER
  • Amazon FBA works quickly in Japan 

So while your competitors are fighting each other in the other “red oceans” around the world, you can come in and potentially dominate this “Blue Ocean” in Japan if you know how to do it.

This means:

  • Less competition and Less sophisticated sellers competing against you 
  • Lower PPC costs
  • Easier to grow sales and make more money than UK and Germany
  • Easier to build an audience
  • Easier to dominate the market
  • Easier to scale the business

So now is the time to enter Amazon Japan.

A lot of people don’t know how to start selling in Japan. They think that you have to be fluent in Japanese.

They think you need to register a company in Japan. Or register VAT or EORI.  

That simply is not true.  

So to help sellers enter the Japanese Amazon market and to DEBUNK those myths about Japan

In 2023 I decided to create the FIRST EVER Amazon Seller Conference in Japan to help you learn how to crush it in this blue ocean market.  

I created this event to help sellers accelerate their selling into Japan.  I knew that since I didn’t speak the language and I could sell into Japan you could do it too.  

But I didn’t do this alone.  In fact I had a mastermind of other sellers selling in Japan to guide me through the journey to sell into Japan.

Here’s what people are saying about the 7 Figure Seller Japan Mastermind

Why do you want to attend the 7 Figure Seller Japan Mastermind?

I'm excited about the opportunity to expand. Like I said, I think our supply chain is right there.I don't know about the regulations. I don't know, but I'm there to learn. I'm there to to expand my business as well. I think if we can plug in Japan at some point this year, it will be a big win for us. It's definitely a marketplace that is lowest hanging fruit, with margin compression with the cost of goods going up with PPC going up in America. We got to look for opportunities to turn our money over faster to raise our bottom line at the end of the year. I think Japan represents a place where it's not much disruption to your supply chain and his low hanging fruit. I think that's a great opportunity.

7 Figure Seller
This is the way you educate yourself. There's tons of things that people including myself, because I've never sold in Japan yet, do not know. And that's actually a good thing because the bigger the barrier of entry are, the more steps that people have to jump through to do something. That means the less people who are actually doing it, less competition. This is a great opportunity to learn all these things that nobody else in the world has taken advantage of right now and nobody else knows about. You're gonna be able to learn these things in person and probably right after this event you're gonna be pumped up and ready to go ahead and potentially launch your product if it's relevant to the Japanese marketplace.

Who is the 7 Figure Seller Japan Mastermind for?

Let me break down 3 types of sellers who this event is a great fit for.

Seller A - 8 Figure Seller already selling in Amazon US or Europe

The product category is not the most important thing but more importantly is the fact that your bestselling SKUs have 1500 reviews or more.  

You already have product development down.  And you already have had success in the US and Canada.  But if you launch a new product in the US and it does $10k a month, that doesn’t really move the needle for your business at this point.  

It’s the law of diminishing returns when it comes to repeating the same thing and getting lesser results.

You’re looking to take a bigger swing.  Rather than adding an additional SKU you want to add a new business unit.  But you are not sure about the whole process of setting up to sell into Japan.  

Dealing with the language barrier, import and compliance regulations and costs uncertainties, and marketing to a different type of customer with Japanese buying behavior. 

Then the 7FSJM is a great opportunity because you will learn the ROADMAP to open up a new marketplace to add an additional $965k to your revenue in 2024.  

Similar brands have experienced this in their Amazon Japan product launches in a 12 month period.  

Moreover you can take advantage of the Amazon global reviews system to carryover all of your reviews to Japan on Day 1 when you launch.  

This gives you an unfair advantage because the competition in Japan is weaker overall, the number of sellers are fewer, and the review thresholds are lower. 

All in all this will make things a lot easier for you as an 8 figure seller selling into Japan.  

In terms of the mindset when dealing with these challenges entering Japan, after you cross the bridges to sell into Japan you will look at these challenges as a MOAT around your business to keep your competition out of Japan.  

In other words they are a natural barrier to entry.


Seller B - High 6 to 7 Figure Business already selling on Amazon US or EU

You have had some success in your main market but growth has plateaued or you have maximized your success.  

Perhaps the new round of Amazon seller fees are taking a big chunk of your margins.  

You could be a digital nomad running your business remotely from Chiang Mai or Bali.  

You probably have a very lean team of VAs and/or contractors but not employees.  

You sense that Japan is a good marketplace but you’re not 100% sure yet.  

You did some preliminary keyword research on Japan and the keywords that rank on Amazon.com are not showing the same results as on Amazon.co.jp. 

You’re not sure if import or compliance regulations will be cost prohibitive for your products.

Then this event is right for you because

You will be able to learn exactly how to find out the JP keywords for your product and how competitive they are, search volume, and also cultural adaptations and considerations for how your product may be used in JP

You will get all of your import/compliance questions answered by Japanese compliance experts at the event.  

You will learn how to Japanify your product to make it more culturally acceptable to JP and increase conversion rates.  

Seller C works for a high 7 figure or 8 figure brand based in the US, UK, or EU.

You’re doing significant sales and your job is international expansion.  

You are considering different marketplaces like Germany, UK, and off Amazon and weighing the pros and cons.  

This is the right event for you because

  • You will be able to get a clear roadmap how foreign brands can setup and sell into Japan quickly
  • You will learn from actual sellers selling in Japan how they did it so you can do it too.
  • You will find the right partners to facilitate this process – import, compliance, logistics, shipping, translation, Marketing, PPC, selling in physical retail, Rakuten
  • By the end of the vent you will have a clear strategy that you can take back to your team how to execute a strategic market entry into Japan to maximize your ROI

What if you’re not one of the 3 sellers above?

The key is the reviews because reviews in Japan are significantly lower.

If you have at least several hundred reviews and your product has product-market fit in Japan I will strongly consider attending.

Rather than investing in new product development and the whole cycle from development, prototyping, launch, marketing, ranking, optimization, you can directly take your existing SKU to market in Japan.

Let’s talk in terms of ROI

You only need to need ship few hundred units of your existing SKU to Amazon’s Japan fulfillment center and pay the $40 a month Amz professional selling plan 

Need to make some changes to your listing in terms of japanese keyword ranking, translations and product image localization.  

And you will require Import compliance regulations, labeling adjustments, and working with an Agent to import into Japan.  

But you will not need to open up a new company.  

And remember when you launch you will carryover your reviews.  So literally you will be at an advantage compared to the weaker competition in most categories in Japan.  

This event may not be a good fit for you if: 

  1. You are a new seller – you will not have the reviews on your existing SKUs to carryover so you will lose out on that advantage
  2. You are not willing to invest the time to compete in a new market – the mindset should be that once you cross these bridges they will be a natural barrier to entry to your competitors. 
  3. Your product does not fit into the JP market culturally – for example 
    1. items that do not CULTURALLY fit in Japan like taco holders, 
    2. Product that don’t PHYSICALLY FIT in Japan like large patio furniture or equipment that do not fit into Japanese homes, 
    3. Items that may be restricted in Japan – certain products may not be legally sold in Japan (Talk to a compliance specialist) 

In all, if this is for you, then this is actually a very low investment for a high chance of unlocking a new business unit in Japan to add $300-965k to your revenue this year.  

This Amazon FBA opportunity in Japan literally dumbfounded an MBA professor I spoke with recently.

His knowledge was the old way of doing business and trying to enter the Japanese marketplace through traditional retail distribution channels and hiring a local country manager and trying to market the brand through traditional offline channels resulted in most brands failing in Japan.  

This new opportunity selling through Amazon FBA, the #1 ecommerce platform in Japan, that can market to 126 million people with such little investment simply didn’t exist just a few years ago.

Now with Amazon and Ecommerce you literally can fastrack your selling into Japan.

If this sounds like you, I recommend you join 7 Figure Seller Japan Mastermind in Okinawa Japan Apr 8-10, 2024.

No, Japan offers visa free access to citizens from 68 countries according to Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Check here for details.

No.  The costs to sell and ship products into Japan will be about the same as selling in other marketplaces around the world.

The shipping costs could be lower and the speed faster if you are sourcing your products from China or Asian countries. 

Japan is a lot closer to these manufacturing regions and you can get them there in weeks rather than months.

This allows you to turn over your inventory faster to save you time and money and free up your cash flow from having to order months and months of inventory than if you were shipping products to the US or EU from Asia.

Moreover, the Japanese Yen is at a 30-year low against the US Dollar.  This means that things in Japan will feel cheaper than before.

Couple that with the fact that Japan has been in a long period of stagnation and prices have not risen significantly. 

This means that Japan may not be as “expensive” to do business in as you think!  In fact for some people it may be a bargain especially if you can add an additional $300-500k to your revenue!

  1. International flights  are high right now.  You may want to use credit card miles or points to redeem a ticket and save thousands of dollars on the flight.

  3. Light breakfast, Lunch, and coffee will be provided
  4. Meals can be very affordable or extravagant in Japan. 
  6.  But at the end of the day, what is $4-5k compared to an additional $300 to $960k you could make selling in Amazon Japan?
