Head Office and Other Sites in the Fukagawa District

Support for Local Film Festival Again This Year

The 8th Koto Cinema Festival was held at Furuichiba Culture Center(Koto-ward, Tokyo), which is located close to Fujikura Headquarters, during three consecutive holidays from January10 to 12. The festival was planned and managed by Koto City Culture and Community Foundation and citizen volunteers of Fukagawa district including Monzennakacho to create a new local culture in hopes of making Fukagawa known for films. Fukagawa is the hometown of a famous film director, Yasujiro Ozu, who sent excellent movies into the world one after another.
We will contribute to the maintenance and development of the local culture through our support for the Koto Cinema Festival from now on, too.

Fujikura Ltd.'s head office welcomed 22 students and their professor from the University of Twente, who were visiting Japan to research about Japanese companies' management methods. During their visit, we provided a brief on our Group and then discussed Japanese companies' management methods.

Weekly dispatch of information about the Millennium Woods

On the Fujikura-Kiba Millennium Woods website established as part of the CSR website of Fujikura Ltd., we post a weekly journal to introduce seasonal changes observed in the bio-garden with brief comments and photos.

Launch of the Ikimono Wonderland website for children

We launched the Ikimono Wonderland website for children as part of our external website on the Fujikura-Kiba Millennium Woods. In this new website created by volunteer employees, we will communicate the wonder and greatness of wildlife as much as possible to first to third graders at elementary school and to their parents. We hope that children who view the Ikimono Wonderland and Millennium Woods websites will grow up to be adults who can protect the global environment and endangered species.

Some part of the facility is opened to the public to temporarily evacuate to safety in case of a disaster.

Fair trade is still a small movement, but we hope from our heart that, through our CSR activity, people both inside and outside the company get to know the idea and the movement of fair trade to expand them all over Japan.
