On February 8, 2024, a new service called "You.en (pronounced as Yuu-en)" will be launched by "FUN! JAPAN". This is the cross-border e-commerce site which targeting working women in Asia.

Utilizing the increasingly popular "short video" format as a means of information gathering, the site aims to propose usage scenarios and create easily visualizable product images. The site also tackles common online shopping concerns, such as the inability to physically handle and see products, by conveying textures and sizes through visual content.

"You.en" offers a wide range of high-quality made-in-Japan products, featuring traditional crafts and techniques, such as wallets, bags, accessories, skin care, and miscellaneous goods. The site selectively curates these items from all over Japan. Additionally, the consideration of pop-up shops and local events for members is being explored in the target countries (Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore).

With a policy of approaching consumers both online and offline, "You.en" aims to introduce and provide high-quality Japanese products. In the future, the site plans to gradually expand operations with a focus on Asia.
