The Liberian Registry opened a full-service office in Imabari, Japan, as part of the continued expansion of its presence in Asia.
Led by Eiji Okazaki, President of the Liberian International Ship and Corporate Registry (LISCR) Japan, the Imabari office is comprised of key staff trained to handle ship registrations and technical issues locally. He has been leading the Tokyo office since 2017, and has helped develop the office to now being one of Liberia’s major and most active locations.

LISCR COO, Alfonso Castillero, kicked-off the night with a speech, which was then followed by congratulatory remarks from Japanese shipowners Mr Nagahisa Seno, Senior Executive Managing Director of Seno Kisen, and Mr Yukito Higaki, President of Shoei Kisen and Imabari Shipbuilding, as well as encouraging words by Mr Koichi Fujiwara, Chairman of Class NK and a strategic partner of LISCR Japan.
