One facebook message is making my dream come true


Sponcered Link

"Do you know where I can buy itasha?"

One message posted to my facebook wall gave me big step making my dream come true.
I believe something starts when someone meet to someone.
I have wished I were the person who connect the some Japanese and some non Japanese who never meet without me.
If it can become business, it would be more than happy. Now, Japan definetely need income from other country to come over earthquake damage.

Woops, it is my bad habit to make story goes to other place from original topic.

To tell the conclusion, I'm now working to connect foreign customer with Japanese custome sticker shop.


Actually, I have been waiting this kind of request.
Destination of this blog is exporting Japanese unique calture, "itasha".

My scenario is like this
Someone see itasha in their town
Wish to have his/her own itasha
Search "how to make itasha" and find my blog
Make itasha with stickers I introducing here.

I made mistake in this scenario. You would already found.
THERE IS NO ITASHA OUT OF JAPAN SO FAR.
Anybody can know itasha withough seeing it in your town?
No.

The first biggest step was how to find the first customer.
And lead whom to create itasha.
I also learned it is very difficult to make itasha out of Japan during time I searched many information about itahsa in Japan.

Basic situation is completely different.
Itahsa has some position in Japan and we already have some custom sticker shops who have experience printing itasha sticker.
Some shops even take a role doing complete design with customer favorite character.
For sure, they will print only one original sticker.

On the other hand, foreign sticker print shops don't have experience for anime print. If they do, they may do only work for 10 or 100 stickers print, not only one custom sticker.

And finally, if you find sticker shops. There is still high wall of "getting permission from publisher".

Therefore, only best way is ask consulting to some Japanese who can communicate in both of English and Japanese.

I did know I can be good coodinator. I also know Japanese to talk about this when I have request. Mean I know Yamaga-san, CEO of YMG1 who design Miku BMW stickers.
He is rare Japanese who is open for foreigner trading.
I also need to learn how to negotiate to publisher for copy right permission but he would be the best adviser for it.

In the other word, I have everything need to coodinate the international itasha sticker trade EXCEPT customer.I don't have American friend who like itasha.
I can't take day-offs to drive itasha in US. Also don't have money.

So, this is the chance I have been waiting for these 6 month writing all posts to attract you to itasha road.

I'm not sure I can make the first foreign itasha from Japan.
Cost may not meet.
But I will do my best to make cool itasha for my first customer and learn as much as I can.

Time is not too late. Please contact me if you consider to have Japanese design itasha with official permission.
I will be some help for you.
(Discussion about my fee is between YMG1 and me. Don't warry about it!)
