Placing value on the importance of attitude toward people’s imagination,

the SHASHIN KAGAKU group, throughout its long history,

continues to pass down the spirit of enterprise.

We will keep that spirit alive and always take on challenges

to achieve high goals from the perspective of creating things.

We will conduct creative activities with rich sensitivity and an inquisitive spirit.

We will deepen trust and cooperation with those around us to inspire a better future.

Approximately 150 years have passed since the first Kyokuzan Ishida (great-grandfather of the present chairman) started copper plate engraved printing in the first year of the Meiji era. Demands and needs of society changed as the eras moved from Meiji to Taisho, Showa and Heisei. Our businesses have also diversified in response to changing social needs. While our focus was concentrated on printing for many years as our core business, today we are engaged in many areas covering many fields. However, the concepts of “from the perspective of creating things” and “attitude toward people’s imagination” have not changed even today nor will they change in the future.
