Your Creative Partner

(who knows what it's like to work in Japan)

We're expats. We know what it's like being a foreigner in Japan, and how tough it can be to integrate into a different culture. We might be a good fit if you're any of these:

Japanese Government Agencies

Are you looking to help or reach foreigners in Japan? To explain in ways that they might more intuitively understand? We're happy to assist.

Looking to Enter Japan

Is your company expanding into Asia, with Japan as a potential launch site? Customer behavior and expectations can be very different here, and we can help you navigate.

What our clients say

Skydea did everything from strategy to coding, and had excellent communication. They were not only fast but flexible, and we were able to massively improve our website's UX/UI and SEO. We're seeing SEO growth and it's only been a few months! We'd love to continue working together!


We craft fun ways to connect with Japanese culture.
