Loren Baker of Search Engine Journal and John Scott of v7n recently took a tour of the Google offices in Japan. You can view photos here.
“Google Japan does have a similar feel to what Google offices are popular for : airy workspace, a pool table, well stocked snackroom, and those Google colored stabilizer balls you always see rolling around the Google offices.”
They were able to visit with Google reps and discuss everything from local search to censorship. A little on Matt Cutts too. Sounds like a great visit.
Loren will be covering the upcoming Search Engine Strategies conference that is coming to Tokyo, Japan April 20-21.
