    I've lived in Japan for almost 5 years now. I'm just about done reforming my house to start a possible home business. I already plan to do some in-house English teaching but would also like to do some type of exporting. Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Maybe buy cheap electronic items and sell them for more money on ebay ?
    Or make a home erotic massage buissness (joke).

    well, you could do as that japanese woman did before, take "orders" from us, and export anything japanese without adding all that extra all those other importers do (over-price it a lot I mean).

    that'd be a good start atleast [​IMG]

    hell, i agree. If it was some cool import stuff and it was sold in the US, i'd buy some stuff from you right now.

    What type of products would people be interested in? Most modern products are the same price as back home. The only thing I can think of would be rare games, consoles, etc.

    Does anyone know what's in demand these days?

    Thanks.
