In the period from 1981 to 2003, 103 companies, including 8 foreign firms, came to Ishikawa.

In response to questionnaires, foreign firms have pointed out advantages such as low rental cost for land, offices that cost less than those in major cities and excellent workers obtained at reasonable cost.

Other advantages cited included good access to big cities (day trips are possible) and well-equipped systems for easy communication with remote places.
