If you are a Japanese company looking for high-quality English-language advertising made in Tokyo, you've come to the right place.

Or, if you're a foreign company looking for high-quality Japanese advertising, the same goes.

Destination West Advertising began in 1982 to fix a glaring problem: Japanese companies were spending fortunes every year on English-language advertising, but their messages weren't getting across. The ads didn't look right. They didn't sound right. We came up with a simple solution: professional advertising created by experienced foreign copywriters and designers. A few bold companies gave us a chance, and things started to change. Their ads started working. Their messages started getting across.

Since then we've grown from a small production boutique to a small full-service advertising agency. We work in both English and Japanese, for both Japanese companies advertising to an international audience and for foreign companies entering the Japanese market. Our areas of expertise include:
