Our company was founded in January 1942 to export Japanese books and magazines, entertainment products like records and shogi as well as typical goods like chopsticks and wooden bowls to meet strong demand from many Japanese people living abroad and expatriate employees.
In 1950, at the request of educational institutions and libraries in Japan, we started an import business. Since then, we have grown based on our mission of introducing traditional Japanese culture around the world and bringing international cultures into Japan.
On April 1, 2008, together with all our employees, we established a new corporate philosophy, "Contributing to international society through the culture business." Committed to this shared philosophy, both the employees and the management strive to achieve the corporate mission of pursuing physical and spiritual happiness for people around the world as well as contributing to the development of humankind and society.
We look forward to your continued support and business in the future.
