I've been using the software for a while now. one of the things I like about makeleaps is the ability to convert quotes into invoices. It's also made it a lot easier to keep track of things and get the relevant information to your accountant. If you are a foreigner running a business in Japan it's well worth checking out.

Too many middle men and cheap imports make the native lumber business unviable . Hence there is no reason why the landowners would want to cut down the trees and replant them. The only good thing is that the trees stop the mountain eroding away.
