Greetings from the President
Kogetsuen’s company philosophy “A bowl of green tea brings people together, like a green bridge that build up peace” can be traced back to 2016, when I won the Rakuten IT Koshien National Championship and created this renga (Japanese song-like poem) with the high school students who took part in the competition.
The founder of Kogetsuen returned from the war zone in China and started the business with the concept “Tea is a lubricant that brings people together.” Until now the idea “Tea, People, Peace” is still emphasized in our daily business.
The awarded piece “Tea bowl ONE WORLD” was designed to express my wish for the peace of all children in the world, and Kogetsuen’s business and philosophy is the embodiment of this tea bowl.
