about us

AXES Partners was established in 2019 by 3 founding partners focused on delivery of high-quality project, development, and facility management services in Japan. The combined multidisciplinary skills between the partners include over 40 years of experience in the Japanese market.

“Within Japan, a significant percentage of the workforce is employed in the construction industry, making up the largest segment of Japanese GDP, and therefore are well protected by the government. Due to ongoing rebuilding efforts following natural disasters and the impending Olympic Games in Tokyo, the labor shortages and subsequent rises in project costs will continue. Clients will need to address their real estate requirements while also learning to quickly adapt to rapid changes within their own industries”.
