OUR STORY

MESSAGE FROM FOUNDER
Today, there are far more foreigners living in Japan than Japanese people imagine. The number is about 2.93 million, or about 2.3% of Japan’s population.
However, due to language and cultural barriers, both foreigners and Japanese living in Japan are under a lot of stress.
In order to make it easier to overcome the language and cultural barriers, it is necessary to create a “staircase”.We will utilize technology to create “stairs” and contribute to the infrastructure for people around the world to live happily in Japan.

When Miki Uchida, the founder of the company, was just starting to work, she was often troubled by differences in skills and values. At such times, it was people from overseas who reached out to her by chance. With their encouragement, she was able to regain her composure, devise a strategy, and continue to take on the challenge of connecting Japan with the rest of the world. “Because I hired them, because I trained them, because I want them to make the most of their abilities…” When we founded our company, we chose the theme of returning the “compassion” we received from the people who took care of us.

The services we provide are each step of a “staircase” to overcome language and cultural barriers.
Why don’t you come with us to climb these stairs and see all people living happily in this country?
