"Japan's used goods sell big in Southeast Asia" proclaim the headline in The Japan Times. According to data supplied by the Japan Re-use Business Journal, more than two dozen Japanese companies have set up at least 62 shops or distributorships selling secondhand Japanese goods in eight Southeast Asian countries in recent years. Those stores receive much of the nearly $1 billion in used goods that Japanese companies legally exported in 2015 (illegal shipments were at least as large). Japanese secondhand goods are rapidly growing into a multibillion-dollar industry — and one of Asia’s most surprising export growth stories. In Malaysia, Jalan Jalan Japan opened our first store in 2016. On our plans are four superstores in Malaysia by 2019.
