Apple is supposedly planning on relocating its Japan headquarters to an office tower in the upscale Roppongi Hills complex in Tokyo, with the move said to be happening as soon as April.
Citing people familiar with the move, Bloomberg reports that Apple will take over two floors in the main Mori Tower at Roppongi Hills, a high-end property development built by Mori Building Co. for an estimated $2.2 billion.
