If you pm me I'm happy to give you the name of the firm I used for my office setup.

Thanks,Kaspersky for your suggestion of contacting the BCCJ! That's a really good idea which for some reason I hadn't considered.
Thanks, WonkoTheSan for your kind offer to put me in touch with the company you used when setting up your office. Apologies for my ignorance, but what is 'PM'??

Hello again Jeff
You are welcome. Just in case you need more help, you should also consider the JETRO (Japan External Trade Organization). It is a branch of the Japanese Ministry of Finance, they have a lot of offices around the world, including one in...London. Worth trying, they are helpful, they can help you for an office, give you documentation.
As stated of their Wikipedia page:
JETRO also provides information and support to foreign companies looking for successful entry and expansion in the Japanese market. JETRO provides a wide range of services, such as timely market intelligence, extensive business development support, and relevant business events, designed to encourage new business between foreign companies and Japan. JETRO also provides current information on the laws and regulations surrounding new business operation in Japan to assist companies in expanding their business to Japan.

Official JETRO website:

JETRO UK branch:

Hi Kaspersky, thanks for the suggestion about contacting JETRO. In fact, I already have been in touch with their London office regarding receiving support as a startup company, but unfortunately didn't meet their criteria. They did however send me a list of contacts in Tokyo that can offer advice.
Again, many thanks for your support!
