  1. it used to be a hub in the past.

    but Lehman Brothers happened, then 3.11, and the rise of China all brought many banks and financial institution to recenter their operations either to Hong Kong, Singapore, Shanghai (few only in Shanghai).
    From there they got a quite abundant pool of multilingual staffs, coverage of not only Japan but the whole APAC, allowing them to keep a small foot print in Japan only (the bare minimum) and most importantly much better taxes, and a geographical position where there aren’t any earth quake.

    it will be hard to lure back those.
