Research, Insight, Strategic Focus

Tiger economies. Sprawling cities. More billionaires than anywhere else. That’s the popular image of Asia-Pacific. Less recognizable is the region’s ethnic diversity, staggering array of languages and vast patchwork of fiercely competitive markets, each with its own business, legal, regulatory and currency requirements.

Building on our years of experience supporting the overseas growth of many of Japan’s leading firms—plus our network of resources and partners across Asia-Pacific and the United States—Yamada Consulting Group is uniquely positioned to take the complexity out of doing business in Asia-Pacific.

With more than 800 experienced consultants and thousands of client engagements, Yamada Consulting Group offers unparalleled access to the research, insight and strategic support needed to identify opportunities, bridge cultural differences and guide your expansion in the region.

Headquartered in Tokyo, Yamada Consulting Group has offices across Japan and throughout Asia-Pacific, including China, Singapore, India, Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam, as well as in the United States.

Working with Spire was a pleasant experience. At first, I assumed that we would only receive a market research report on the e-commerce business. However at the end of project, they presented their insightful strategic direction and creative business suggestions, which had far exceeded our expectation. Since then, I have recommended Spire to my colleagues with no hesitation.
