FIXERS JAPAN is a Tokyo-based and still Japan's gateway for the international media travelers like TV producer, Filmmaker, Photo journalist, Corporate PR, etc to establish communication with locals.
A fixer is someone who acts as a local producer offering assistance and coordination to the foreign media parties, who are trying to acquire specific stories in Japan.
Hiring a local fixer on your shoot in Japan is crucial because it can be much more difficult for you to get a good local story or to even connect with the residents of the country. We would say the fixer is your reliable local business partner, communicator and coordinator in unfamiliar country. Without a fixer, you easily are put in a very difficult situation to get important local information, and the worst case is that you might be put in totally lost of the direction. Japanese people are friendly indeed but many of you may struggle with language and cultural barrier. And it surprisingly happens even in the big cities.
FIXERS JAPAN is a cost effective solution for foreign media production crew who especially have short to mid term visit to Japan on their project. We offer one-stop fixing service from the research to the site making sure your project would be smooth and successful. Feel free to tell us about your upcoming project in Japan. With wealth of experiences having assisted various international media crew, our bilingual/trilingual fixers will smooth the way for your production in Japan.

We mainly work with the international media related crew coming to Japan from all over the world. In other words,
we specilize in an inbound media business, not like other production company based in Tokyo.
Before your arrival, all is set.
Culturally, Japan has so many unpredictable difficulties and restrictions yet to carry out the media project.
Our savvy local fixer facilitates your story, permit beforehand and fully support your production in Japan.
Even now, many locations request Japan based company to mediate between you and them. When gaining
a permit from the public institutions, Japan based company is often required to represent a foreign production.
We have seen many "LOST IN TRANSLATION" visitors in Japan. Yet Japan seems to be One language, One culture,
One nation country. Our bilingual/trilingual fixer will save you the troubles behind the scenes.
In Japan, many production companies demand about 15% production fee but we don't. In addition,
we can organize any crew locally as per your request. You can save some extra costs then.
If you need a Fixer/Translator/Driver respectively, we can provide these service as all-in-one now. That could be
more cost effective and smooth your way. Name what you need, we happily fix it for you.
We will try to operate to a tight deadline and provide personalized service to meet your requests.
We are Tokyo-based, but secure professional freelancing fixers in certain regions of Japan. We also travel happily
throughout the country on your production. FIXERS JAPAN supports all year round and anywhere in Japan.
