Cosponsoring the Japan Century Symphony Orchestra

As part of our CSR activities, we have cosponsored the Japan Century Symphony Orchestra as a corporate supporter since October 2016.
In addition to regular concerts, the orchestra focuses on community-based social contributions, such as "hospital concerts" to cheer up the elderly and patients through music, and "Touch the Orchestra," which encourages children in the next generation to become more familiar with music. We will provide support mainly for such community-based social contributions.
