Digital Garage

Tokyo-based Digital Garage (JASDAQ: 4819) focuses mainly on 3 business domains: startup incubation, marketing and promotion, and online payment businesses.

Digital Garage was founded so we could contribute to the building of a better society by creating the Internet contexts for “real space” and ever-expanding “cyber space,” as well as by connecting Japan with countries overseas, marketing with technology and the present with the future.

Since then, Digital Garage has invariably positioned itself at the forefront of the Internet and has implemented many first-ever, Internet-based projects in Japan. We believe that our history is a parallel of the history of the Internet in Japan.

As Digital Garage persists in its efforts to add another new page to this dynamic history, we appreciate your ongoing interest and support for our present and future success.
