Yaraku is a small start-up located in Shibuya, Tokyo. We're a software company, dealing with language and translation. Our focus is primarily on our web-based Translation Management System application. We don't have much of a work hierarchy, with everyone interacting as peers and equals. The international nature of the team leads to English being used around the office.
