The forty-plus employees at MSLGROUP in Japan started work at their new office in Tokyo’s haute couture district, Omotesando, on June 27th, 2016. The move is the result of aligning Groupe resources with the Publicis One model, launched in late 2015. MSLGROUP in Japan will share its new home, a four-story office located at 4-9-3 Jingu-mae, Shibuya Ward, with Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness and DigitasLBi. Former tenants Saatchi & Saatchi Fallon Japan have moved to share facilities with Beacon Communications / Leo Burnett.
Serving diverse clients from the healthcare, IT, food and beverages, FMCG, airline and tourism sectors as well as public organizations, MSLGROUP will be positioned right in the heart of “Cool Japan” — in an internationally famous locale that overflows with Japanese shoppers and travelers every weekend. This move comes at a time of increasing business for MSLGROUP in Japan, with business increasing in double digits versus 2015. The move places it within walking distance to some of its major clients and only a short distance from the major hub station Shibuya and the center of youth-culture, Harajuku.
The office relocation took place as Japan transitions from the rainy season into the hot Japanese summer. Workplaces around Japan will be holding “shoki barai,” — get-togethers where employees enjoy food and drink to prepare for the sweltering season ahead. MSLGROUP in Japan celebrated the move on a recent Friday and officially called the office home.
Why not stop by our new office on your next business trip to Japan, and squeeze in some sightseeing into your busy schedule? We look forward to welcoming you in Tokyo!
Best Regards, from everyone at MSLGROUP in Japan
