Is there a requirement on the applicant’s age for Japan’s investor visa?

I am 24 years old now and will graduate from a college in Tokyo with a master’s degree next year. I would like to establish a business in Japan and apply for an investor visa. I was told that applicants must be at least 30 years old to be qualified for this kind of visa. Is it true? Is there a way to work around this?

    No, there is no requirement on the applicant's age for Japan's investor visa. A 24-year-old foreign citizen is entitled to an application for a business manager visa status by establishing own company in Japan. Examinations will be made of the applicant's ability to run the business, preparation of the initial investment, etc., so that the age and experience may be one of the important factor to judge his ability as an entrepreneur and top management.
