  • What Japanese things should my buddy sell on the internet?

    This is actually a real question!
    I was having a few beers with my buddy today (He's Japanese 25, quit his engineering job about 3 months ago)

    He has this 'plan' to sell Japanese stuff on the internet. He just doesn't know what. He knows his target market is Americans etc.

    I said he should sell those plastic models of girls like you get at U.F.O catcher.
    He didn't love that idea.

    Any suggestions?

    he should sell himself the idea of getting a new job before he decides he's going to be a successful entrepreneur. it's not as easy as he thinks, especially when he doesn't even know what he wants to sell, plus the american dollar is weak.

    i'd tell him to get real and get a job and find a hot selling product in his downtime at work

      Probably worth his while googling all the other internet sites selling "Japanese stuff" to "Americans" to understand who/what his competition is...

        It might just be a fad these days - but when I travel back to visit, I am forever begged for old fabric that will be used in quilts, pillow covers, etc. Not just recycle shop used Kimono stuff - but older pieces. Recycle shops are still the source - but the fabric is the stuff they can't sell and may be enticed into setting it aside for pickup.

              Your buddy needs a business plan. I recommend he investigate the going rate for body parts on the black market!

                    I agree. But he doesn't like the whole manga, panties stuff..(he's a bit odd I guess)
                    Also, those panties aren't as easy to come by as they used to be you know...

                    He's into motorbikes... but I imagine that market is pretty well flooded..maybe. I dunno.

                    Thanks all,
                    any more ideas welcome.
