you can apply for a 4 month Business Manager visa

has been created to make it easy for foreign national

Your company's financial report is also important for the assessment.
If the balance sheet of your business shows surplus,
it would be assessed that there is no financial problem with your business,
but when it shows deficit and the debts substantially exceed the assets,
it becomes a problem.

you have to submit the loan contract as an evidence
document. There are exceptions:

more out of total capital 10,000,000 yen for
joint ventures with a Japanese counterpart.

if the investment is made by only the Japanese partner

with hiring people and taxes. at Often,

if you have a Japanese partner.There have been cases that even though the corporation registers were approved in Japan,
