Does there exist a dataset containing information (historical or current) on the following characteristics of Japanese companies?

  1. Industries (e.g. "electronics").
  2. Headquarter addresses (e.g. "3-23-14 Higashi-Ikebukuro, Toshima-Ku, Tokyo, 170-0013"). Latitudes/longitudes would be even better.

The dataset maintained by Aswath Damadaran at Stern seems extensive, but it only includes per-company industries, not HQ addresses.

The Tokyo Stock Exchange listed company search seemed promising, but as far as I can tell, although they provide per-company industries, their provided HQ addresses only specify the city, not the full address.

You can look into opencorporates. They provide a nice api to download data. Recently they have added database of 4.4 million japan companies.

Search for SoftBank gives
