Our belief

  • "Getting excited" is the driving force for everything

    Kazumasa Miki
    Representative Director & President

    Creating that exciting feel is extremely important for us, because that is what defines the value of the com­pany. First, we as creators need to be excited. Once we create an exciting product, we can share that ex­citement with our customers. Working hours account for a big amount of our time in life. If we can enjoy those hours in any way, it will lead to a better quality of life. For us to become a good company, it is crucial for us to feel the excite­ment from within. This is our belief.

  • Developing ideas and execution

    Erika Kinoshita
    Sales Marketing / Distribution staff

    I am in charge of ordering packaging. Most of my contacts are overseas(China), so we exchange through emails. At this company, if you have good ideas and the ability to execute them, you have a big chance of making it into a product. As most medium-sized companies are, we have a good environment in which we get to work closely with our superiors.I feel that is is more important to learn with your body rather than your mind. This job is suited for those who are tough and have a strong sense of curiosity. I want to learn trade affairs in the future to play an important role in our company.

  • Becoming a company loved by all

    Kazuo Nakamoto
    Sales Department Manager/Tokyo Branch Manager

    We are set out to become a company that is loved by the people and the society. That does not mean just the customers who use our products. Our customers, our employees, our employees'families, clients, stakeholders, the community. We believe that sharing joy with everybody involved with our company is the path to creating a valuable future. We will give our upmost effort to being flexible with the changing envi­ronment, living out the future, and continue growing as a company.

  • Recognizing the characteristics of shipped products

    Yusuke Kowaki
    Fukusaki Product Center / Staff

    Currently, I am in charge of unloading and shipping products at the distribution center. This is where all the Shirasagi products are sent out to all over Japan. Since making one mistake here can lead to much bigger problems, I work daily with a very strong feeling of responsibility. I would like to plan and sell my own products in the future. Working at the distribution center lets you distinctly recognize the characteristics of the products being shipped out seasonally. Being able to gain such knowledge in the field has been very productive for myself.

  • Link Our Achievement and Pride to the Future

    Motonori Horiguchi
    Toyotomi Factory / Factory Manager

    "Partial use of fabrics" has become a standard nowadays, and most companies employ this method. Actually, this was something Shi­rasagi familiarized about 20 years ago. We pride in these kinds of achievements, and we are always devoted to adding some extra value. The merit to owning a domestic factory is the speed of infor­mation distribution. We can quickly input the good, and quickly remove the bad. The "Made in Japan" brand itself is taken well by the consumers, and it allows us to produce with great care. We aspire daily to create products that are wanted by everybody.
