The Japan Financial Services Agency (JFSA) is known as a strict watchdog for the financial services industry in Japan, and also does its best to keep Japanese traders from trading with overseas brokers, including binary options brokers. Most binary options brokers in Japan have therefore registered an office in the country to be able to better serve the local Japanese binary options traders.
Trading is popular in Japan, and that also includes binary options trading. Japan is also one of a few developed countries where binary options trading remains legal and fully regulated by the national financial regulator. However, binary options brokers in Japan are normally only available for Japanese residents, and residents in other countries should instead look for a broker elsewhere.
