The GoConnect Story

GoConnect was born from a simple idea: to help local businesses when they needed it most. In early 2020, the Covid-19 outbreak was having a drastic effect on a broad range of businesses in Tokyo—in some cases, threatening their very survival. As an SME ourselves, we at Custom Media knew we needed to help, and took action by doing what we do best—advertising and marketing. Today, is a trusted and leading lifestyle and business information resource for the expat community in Tokyo.
