Values

We will flexibly respond to societal change and help bring about the next big changes. We overcome boundaries like “I can’t do it” or “I’ve never tried before” to take on new challenges each day.

We take pride in our professionalism and ability to be consistently thorough. Our focus on the details of trivial tasks helps us fulfill our responsibilities and promises.

We aim to be a company that positively impacts society by delivering joy to the people. Our search for yet-to-be-found sensations and economic potential will forever continue.

Team unity and co-creation are the most important forces for driving accomplishments in new fields. With respect toward our coworkers in our hearts, we will praise each other as we take on challenges.

We should cherish our private moments just as much as work. From family to recreation and hobbies, let’s continue enjoying and enriching our daily lives.
