This is why we are taking steadfast actions to realize this corporate philosophy from the perspective of contributing to our neighbors.

Donating Post Cards to Local Elementary Schools

With the spread of personal computers and smartphones, it is gradually becoming less common to write things by hand. Given this, the Company makes biannual donations of post cards, for New Year’s and summer greetings seasons, to local elementary schools in the hopes that this will familiarize students with the custom and culture of writing letters. We also would like this experience to enable these students to feel the joy of writing and conveying their thoughts.

Supporting Youth Rugby

The Japan of today is a country of technological development, but also changing lifestyles, low birthrates and other ongoing issues. Moreover, the importance of children playing outdoors and sports is neglected, and there are fewer opportunities, places and friends with whom they can experience physical activity.
Given this environment, Shinsho has since 2013 sponsored NPO Heroes working in the spirit of leveraging sports to “create a comfortable and inclusive society with the support that enables anyone to become a hero in their respective lives, and nurture the future generation.”
