Introducing Japan
to the World

Looking forward to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and considering the strong growth of inbound tourism and regional development, Japan has begun to focus on developing global marketing tools. This has prompted many Japanese companies to consider the question: “How can we share the best of Japan with the rest of the world?”

We understand this is no easy task. ENGAWA, a subsidiary of the Japanese public relations company Sunny Side Up, was founded to help businesses and brands overcome this challenge and showcase the allure of Japan in innovative ways.

To facilitate this process and broaden our available platforms, Tokyo Weekender – the longest-running English language magazine in Japan, established in 1970 – joined ENGAWA in December 2015.

Our name reflects our desire to start a conversation between Japan and the rest of the world.

Our ultimate mission? To be your global communication partner and help introduce the unique appeal of Japanese culture and brands to the far reaches of the globe.
