Featured U.S. Exporters (FUSE)

Featured U.S. Exporters (FUSE) is a directory of U.S. products and services that appears on our local Japanese language website, targeting our audience of Japanese importers, distributors, wholesales, and agents. Each FUSE posting also appears in one issue of our biweekly Japanese language email newsletter, sent to over 3,700 Japanese subscribers. Reach out to them in Japanese by becoming a Featured U.S. Exporter on the site.

Your FUSE posting includes:

  • Your company name.
  • A 250 Japanese character description of your product/service and your objective in the Japanese market.
  • One JPEG or GIF image, 200x200 pixels maximum. Product images, corporate logos, and other emotive images all work well, depending on what you are promoting. Commercial Service Japan staff may edit the image as necessary.
  • A link to your website.
  • We will publish the text of your FUSE listing, on a one-time basis, in our biweekly Japanese-language newsletter received by over 3,700 subscribers (importers, distributors, wholesalers and agents) throughout Japan.
  • Commercial Service Japan staff will translate trade leads generated through your posting into English and forward them directly to you for your follow-up.
  • Further Commercial Service assistance with follow-up is available through our Gold Key and other programs!
