"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."

"We have seen a trend in the last 18 months of a growing interest in private space exploration from Japan. To meet that demand, we're opening a Tokyo office to respond to the thousands of requests we've received," said Eric Anderson, president and CEO of Space Adventures. "Since our inception in 1998, we've offered a full-range of space experiences from simulation to spaceflight. We're excited to have a formal presence in Japan and we look forward to announce the first Japanese space tourist in the coming weeks."
Space Adventures is currently (as of this post) the only company to successfully launch tourists into space (Dennis Tito and Mark Shuttleworth who both paid $20 million). This company is headquartered in Washington, DC with offices also in Russia. They have also launched a Japanese site which has some pretty funny astronaunt photo's on it.
