Patent Search/Information Support – Japan

There are many patents that are filed only in Japan, and non-patent literature that is published only local languages or local journals of Japan, and nowhere else. Accordingly, such patents and non-patent literature cannot be ignored for any patent study/opinion covering Japan. However, considering the complexities involved (pertaining to relatively inaccessible digital patent / non-patent search systems, potential language issues, etc) patent and/or non-patent literature in Japan may be often untapped and can be a black-box for rest-of-the world.
