The JAPAN Fes in New York
What is JETRO's "JAPAN STORE", who took part in the JAPAN Fes?
JETRO (Japan External Trade Organization) set up a booth at JAPAN Fes to promote their JAPAN STORE, a dedicated shop on Amazon.com to support Japanese companies in developing sales channels.
The booth displayed Japanese products sold on Amazon in the U.S. and distributed product information cards with 2D barcodes to guide customers from offline to online.
TOMO also supplies products in the U.S on Amazon and has opened the TOMO Store. Among our products available on JETRO’s JAPAN STORE, TOMO Café Genshin and wasanbon sugars were exhibited at the JAPAN Fes.
What was the reaction of visitors to the JAPAN STORE booth?
"I found the JAPAN STORE on Amazon when I was looking for matcha online. Besides the products I was looking for, I have never seen their lineup, but I was really interested in other Japanese products when I came” said some visitor.
“I often shop on Amazon, but I didn't know about the JAPAN STORE. I usually don’t ask questions about products that are difficult to use, so this booth was helpful” explained another one.
“I was surprised to see many products that I have never seen in the U.S. I will use the JAPAN STORE” expressed a visitor.
Many positive comments were received during the event. (Source: JETRO Business Brief)

Thank you JETRO!
It is difficult, time-consuming, and expensive to promote Genshin and Wasanbon products in such a large country.
We are grateful for this opportunity.
We will continue our efforts to promote and create appealing products through JETRO's "JAPAN STORE" on Amazon.com and spread the beauty of TOMO’s natural Japanese products across the U.S.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank JETRO for giving us this opportunity. Thank you very much!
★ Another day of JAPAN Fes will be held on October 23rd. We will report about it on our blog soon!
