Having over 20 million fans on Facebook, Tokyo Otaku Mode launched as a cross-border eCommerce site in 2013, began sales of original “Tokyo Otaku Mode Projects” merchandise planned and developed in-company in 2016, and is now engaging in various forms of licensing.

The licensing success story of “NESCAFE Gold Blend Barista” in the Japan market

Mr. Motoi Shimakawa, Manager, Regular Soluble Coffee Department Beverage Business Group, Nestlé Japan Ltd.
The “NESCAFE Gold Blend Barista” is the best-selling coffee machine in Japan with over 450 million units sold. By utilising characters and brands tailored to each target layer and region, we were able to induce fans to purchase coffee machines that would not normally do so. In this seminar we will use various examples to illustrate this strategy.
