A business center that helps Korean content production companies advance in Japan opened in Tokyo Thursday.
The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the Korea Creative Content Agency ran the center's opening ceremony at the Korean Cultural Center inside the Korean Embassy in the city.
The center is expected to assist Korean content businesses by providing them with meeting venues and various services for exhibition and promotion. It will, in particular, be used to introduce Korea's latest entertainment products made with virtual and augmented reality technologies.
