What are we doing?

We are a start-up company aiming to provide convenience for foreigners living in Japan by creating a community consisting of small businesses, in which foreigners (and Japanese) can support each other.

How does it work?

We provide C-to-C business platform in multiple languages. It is a type of business in which people can trade directly with each other.

What makes us different?

Our aim is not only to make people within our community to be able to directly trade goods or services, but also to strengthen trust with other member inside the community.

OUR site:

This is a 2nd hand goods selling/buying platform for foreigners living in Japan (currently in Hokkaido).

We also have facebook page, feel free to check it.

Started company

07/09/2019: stating as a company

In July 2019, two other team members came and four of us decided to register ourselves as a company under Kitalabs name. Currently, there are four team members consisting of 2 Indonesians, 1 Japanese and 1 Azerbaijani.

Just do it


Two of our members had an idea of creating platform where foreign students in Japan can interact and help each other. 2gaijin was started based on this idea.

2gaijin's initial idea was to reduce waste problems that mainly caused by students leaving Japan, leaving behind many unused items like washing machine, fridge, and other big bulky items. 2gaijin is created for foreign students to easily sell or give away those items to other students.

Within first week of our experiment, we were able to get positive feedback, and even getting a small profit from 2gaijin.
