The president arrived in Japan to attend the enthronement ceremony for Emperor Naruhito on Tuesday.
"Georgia has been developing in a constant manner in recent years, and we have now quite a promising situation between (the European Union) and Asia because we have a free trade agreement with the EU and we also have one with China and pretty soon with India," she said.
According to the president, the country's location provides a number of business opportunities.
Naruhito became emperor on May 1, shortly after his father, Emperor Akihito, 85, abdicated due to his age and deteriorating health, in favor of his son in late April. The second part of the enthronement ceremony featuring foreign guests is scheduled for October 22.
