BEACON Associates






CEO Shinichi Murakami

My both paternal and maternal grandfathers crossed the sea, worked in a foreign land and lived with family. Perhaps the thought of me wanting to work abroad, wanting to know about foreign countries might be because I have the blood of my grandfathers who were such challengers.
My wish was fulfilled, I also lived abroad like my grandfathers and I had the opportunity to visit many countries. Working with people from various countries, spending time together and deepening mutual understanding was a great pleasure for me and it became a treasure of my life.

By living in a foreign country, I was able to objectively judge the pros and cons of Japan in my own way. Japan has a rich history, culture, national identity, nature and I look forward to foreigners understanding these merits.

We also assist our customers through our capability and experience with the highest potential. This helps in creating a common ground of understanding between two different countries and cultures.
We endeavor to create a bond of trust and relationships for you with overseas customers.
We are looking forward to partnering with you in your new journey.
