I’m Okuma, the editor-in-chief of Groovy Japan.
I was originally in charge of managing a regional portal site in Japan. But about a year ago, I began involved in the Groovy Japan project.
I will be blogging here as editor-in-chief soon, so keep a look out!
When I joined the Groovy Japan project, it was right around the time of the Covid-19 pandemic. We couldn’t travel to-from our Malaysian subsidiary, JL CONNECT MALAYSIA, as overseas travel was restricted.
For Groovy Japan’s media section, our main focus was to introduce tourist spots and events around Japan. But right from the start, we were forced to change direction…
Despite the rough start, there is one factor that remained the same from day 1 of the project to this day:
“Delivering The Best of Japan to the World“.
It would be a lie to say that we’re not affected by Covid-19. However, we at Groovy Japan have approached this business with the flexibility to turn a crisis into an opportunity.
I think flexibility is a very important part of establishing a new business or service.
(Not trying to boast here, but I can’t even count the number of projects that haven’t come out yet💦)
If Japan’s inbound tourism is unlikely to resume shortly, why not take a break from tourism-related content?
In the meantime, let’s take this as an opportunity to rethink the role that WE, as latecomers, should play in the face of existing overseas media.
After countless discussions, we came upon an absolute concept.
“Bridging the Gap Between Japanese Companies and the Islamic Market Via a Business Perspective”.
Why focus on the Islamic Market?
Find out on my next blog.
Have a nice day!
