A Visit to Shikoku in Japan - Office Found

Reason for this visit

As the world‘s third largest economy, Japan is the one of the forex trading hubs in Asia-Pacific. JPY has become a major currency in the trading as the global trade and capital flow expands. The country boasts a large scale forex spot market, with an average daily transaction volume of around 300 billion US dollars. Institutional investors are the main participants, while the proportion of individual investors rises steadily. At the meantime, the Financial Services Agency (FSA) and the Securities and Exchange Surveillance Commission (SESC) in Japan impose more stringent regulations on forex brokers, requiring them to verify the customers’ identity and hold sufficient funds. Recent years have witnessed the rise of online trading platforms. In brief, with an increasingly strict regulatory rules, Japans forex market is expected to embrace bright prospects – or a more stable global role for JPY.

On-site visit

On November 15, 2023, the investigators came to 9-41 Toiyacho in Matsuyama, the biggest city in Ehime, Japan, and located an office building beside the street. There are six offices of Shikoku in Ehime, including its head office. The eye-catching company name and logo of “Shikoku” as well as “四国アライアンス証券” on the façade of the building could be seen from a distance.


After arriving at the mansion for further investigation, the survey personnel spotted a reception area with intercom system at the entrance. Unluckily, people werent allowed to enter the building without an access card. The team had no clue about the exact company size due to the failure to pay an internal visit to the office and take photos inside.

Through the on-site investigation, it is confirmed that Shikoku has a physical presence at the place.

This indicates that the broker has a physical business office at the location. Unfortunately, the exact business size of Shikoku is unknown as the team can’t access the office for a visit and taking photos is not prohibited inside.
