People often have the image that Japanese people are very wealthy. There are lots of reasons for this, and I could discuss it for hours! I’ll just give you a statistic released today.

The average monthly wage in japan is now 313, 856 yen. Adjusting for standard of living, this places japan just below Germany, a few points off the UK, and quite a bit below the US.

Don’t go crazy with pricing, thinking your products will sell at a higher price than other markets. Japanese are very price conscious. Of course with the right brand image and promotion, you may well be able to charge a premium price. It all comes down to research. Bit obvious really!
