There are four kinds of company in Japan, as the company limited (Co., Ltd.), the limited liability company (LLC), the limited partnership and the unlimited company.

The last one consists of unlimited partners, and the last but two consists of the unlimited partner and limited partner, that means trade-off between unlimited responsibility and not necessity of capital (=easy to set up).

those two kinds of company are limited companies, which are two big streams to establish the company in Japan , of which capital is mandatory, and that need to pay head tax at 70,000 Yen a year at least, even if the company has a deficit.

The capital can be set at only one yen at the least, but that is not practical because of non-credibility for business contacts, much less the officer in the Immigration Bureau, if you want to come to Japan to manage your company for yourself.

Then, they say that you should set at more 5.000.000 Yen as capital, if you want to do, or you should employ more two residences in Japan as full-time workers.
