Google officially opened their R&D doors in Tokyo, Japan last week with a series of open houses to celebrate and outreach.

The Engineering Directors of the Tokyo R&D Center are Howard Gobioff who is a PhD and Mizuki McGrath. They made a post in the Google blog tonight letting the World in on Google’s expansion:

“Recently we relocated to Japan to take on the challenge of extending Google’s global engineering organization by opening a new R&D center in Shibuya, Tokyo (co-located with the existing sales office).

Last week we officially opened our doors, and celebrated the occasion with a series of open houses (see pictures below), hosting more than 300 students, professors, researchers, professional engineers, media, and partners. Our goal here is the same as all the other engineering locations (Hi Bangalore! Hi Zurich!) – recruit great engineers from a diverse set of backgrounds (not just search!), give them a fun and exciting work environment and freedom to explore their ideas, and then watch them create innovative technology that impacts the world.”
