One year ago to this day, Moku Digital officially opened operations in Tokyo, Japan. We’re 1 year old in Japan!

A year ago, building on the success from the Australian scene, we expanded into an entirely new market and culture with hopes of opening new opportunities for the Japanese market for their international expansion. The challenges of business expansion into a foreign market are often daunting, however the advantages of providing a universal service in a rapidly developing industry, coupled with local connections have allowed us to slowly make our mark in the Japanese market.

Today is Thursday and it must be noted that our first birthday in Japan falls on MOKUyoubi, which is the Japanese word for Thursday. Co-incidence? We think so.

Time of open that can of Asahi beer and kanpai (cheers)! Here’s to many more meetings involving delicious Japanese food and whisky!

一年前のこの日、モクデジタルは東京にて正式に事業を開始しました。モクデジタル一周年です!

一年前、オーストラリアにおける事業が好調のため、事業を海外に拡張するべく、全く新しいマーケットと文化を持つ日本に活躍の場を求め、日本のマーケットに参入しました。

海外のマーケットにおける事業拡張という挑戦には困難がつきものですが、急速に成長するウェブ業界でグローバルに事業を展開してきた利点を活かすことに加え、既存のコネクションが ゆっくりながらも徐々に日本のマーケットでの成功に導いてくれました。

今日は木曜日です。お気づきかもしれませんが、モクデジタルの日本での一周年はMOKU曜日になりました。日本語でMOKUは木曜日ですね!偶然でしょうか?そう思います。

アサヒビールの缶を開けて、 乾杯する時です!今後の新しい出会いを願って、美味しい日本食とウィスキーを最中に乾杯!
