A few things we’re great at

Pliant is an exclusive agent for Sompo Japan, one of Japan’s “big 3” mega insurance companies.

The three major insurance companies in Japan are Sompo Japan, Tokio Marine, and Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance. Sompo Japan was the first fire insurance company in Japan and has the longest history in fire insurance. Pliant is an exclusive insurance agent for Sompo Japan.

Founded in 1981, with 40 years of experience

In addition to our head office in Sasebo, Nagasaki, we have offices in China (Dalian) and Tokyo. We provide not only the best insurance but also peace of mind to our customers based on our many years of experience and achievements.

Multilingual service

In Japan, there are few insurance agencies that offer multilingual support. Pliant provides multilingual support for everything from quotations to application procedures and follow-up service.

Head office in Nagasaki

We have two offices in different locations. Even if a disaster hits Tokyo and the Tokyo office is inoperative, the staff in Nagasaki will be available to assist our clients.
