Here is a short video highlighting what we could do for you if we partnered together to grow your brand into Japan.

Brief History of Rising Sun Commerce

Back in 2014 Neil Curtis was running a brand that sold almost exclusively on Amazon across Europe. At the same time John Cant was running an food subscription and delivery eCommerce company in Hull, UK. Both Neil and John have several years of online marketing and eCommerce experience between them.

Neil and John came together at C4DI, where they are both active members. This partnership leaned on John’s experience of Japan (where he lived and worked for several years) and Neil’s experience of selling on Amazon, and they started to export and sell products in Japan via the Amazon Japan marketplace. The 3rd key member of the team is Kayo Wakasugi, native Japanese and bi-lingual in Japanese and English. Kayo is a specialist in Japanese translations and market research.

Almost instant success led to the formation of Rising Sun Commerce, which evolved into an Agency to help other non-Japanese brands launch successfully into Japan.

Fast-forward to the present day and Rising Sun Commerce now works with an array of small single product brands and large global brands with hundreds of SKUs to help them launch and sell their products as well as grow their brand presence in Japan.
