The LINE Group's global headquarters are located in Tokyo, and LINE Fukuoka was established in 2013 as its second domestic base.
We continue to challenge ourselves to create "WOW = No. 1" services while working together with group locations around the world.
There are three main reasons why the LINE Group chose Fukuoka as its second base after Tokyo.
①"Closeness" with the local government, citizens, and private businesses
It is easy to create challenges in Fukuoka through co-creation, thanks to a city that proactively integrates cutting-edge technology as well as residents and private businesses that flexibly adapt to new things. To make the most of this environment, LINE and LINE Fukuoka concluded the "Comprehensive Partnership Agreement on Community Collaboration Projects" with Fukuoka City in 2018. By strengthening ties with the city while simultaneously promoting co-creation with other private business, the LINE SMART CITY FOR FUKUOKA project strives to utilize our state-of-theart technology (such as AI and Fintech) to make Fukuoka a richer, more convenient, and futureoriented "Smart City."
② Fukuoka, the "Gateway to Asia"
LINE is now used around the world, and is particularly prevalent across Asia. When it comes to maintaining a sense of speed in collaborating with other offices across Asia, Fukuoka offers geographic value that is hard to beat.
③ Enriched educational facilities
Fukuoka City is fortunate to have numerous educational facilities, drawing in young people from all over western Japan. Collaborative IP use by industry and academia as well as business creation are progressing through these students’ proactive involvement in the development of local game/content companies, making the region extremely active in the IT sector.
These are the roles that LINE Fukuoka plays as LINE's second domestic base. We work quickly on a variety of initiatives in order to further the growth of LINE and its related services.
LINE Fukuoka gathers talent from all over Japan and the world. Take a look at how we have grown since our establishment, as well as a breakdown of our employee's ages, how many have relocated from other parts of Japan or overseas, and how many of our staff come from other countries.
