Toshinobu Kasai
Managing Director, Country Head of JLL Japan


Founded in 1783, JLL is a professional services and investment management firm specializing in real estate. With a history of more than 200 years, JLL operates in 80 countries and has nearly 300 corporate offices with a global workforce of approximately 78,000. JLL is a Fortune 500 company and has been on the World’s Most Ethical Company for 10 consecutive years.

JLL Japan has been operating since 1985 and offers integrated real estate services capitalizing on in-depth local expertise. Since its inception, JLL Japan has grown its service offerings to include tenant representation, leasing, transaction management, investment/disposition advisory, property and asset management, corporate real estate consulting, portfolio management, project and development services, facility management, supply chain consulting, energy and sustainability services, hotels & hospitality advisory, and research to maximize the value of our clients’ real estate assets.

As Japanese corporations seek more opportunities through overseas business expansion, operational outsourcing, and corporate governance, demand for real estate strategy and services continue to grow. Concurrently, as Work Style Reform remains an important topic in Japan, Japanese corporates are taking actions to enhance corporate value while improving productivity at work. Our “Future of Work” concept and “Human Experience” framework provides clients the right tools and skills necessary to accomplish these goals, putting employees at the center of workplace.

While the landscape of real estate continues to change, it is evolving faster than ever before. “Prop Tech” and technologies in real estate are reshaping how people and companies utilize real estate. To that end, we place great emphasis on technology as one of our key strategies and continuously strive to become the industry leader. JLL’s strength lies in our global network spanning across 80 countries, our local experts' knowledge, and innovative technologies that add value to our clients. We deliver the best quality service to help achieve our clients’ real estate ambitions.

JLL's history of more than 200 years attest to our ability to overcome economic / political uncertainties and withstand volatile real estate cycles. We are committed to deliver value to all our clients including investors, occupiers and all users of real estate. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to working with you.
