Japan is a country in Asia and is the location of Nintendo's headquarters.


Kyoto is a city in Japan. It is the location of Nintendo and has been since 1889 when Fusajiro Yamauchi founded the company. Most of Nintendo's internal Japanese development divisions are found in Kyoto, such as corporate, Nintendo Entertainment Analysis and Development, Nintendo Integrated Research and Development, Nintendo Software Planning and Development, and various others.



Tokyo is the capital of Japan, and many video game developers are stationed here. In Tokyo, HAL Laboratory, The Pokémon Company, Creatures, and Genius Sonority are stationed within the same building: the The Nihombashi, Chuo-ku, Tokyo building, previously known as the Nintendo Tokyo Prefecture Building. Interestingly, every company is heavily involved with the Pokémon franchise. This is no coincidence, as years before this arrangement happened Nintendo was planning on placing all of the studios together in one building. GameFreak is among the only major Pokémon developers not placed within the building, though this can be concluded due to not actually being owned by Nintendo.

Nintendo EAD Tokyo and HAL Laboratory's second office is stationed at a building in Kanda Suda-cho.
