Our Mission

team

"Keep on being SPECIAL"

"Sell something, and turn a profit."
Though this is the basic line of thinking with many enterprises, we simply cannot be satisfied with such ideas.
We make "Keep on Being SPECIAL" one of our main missions in this rapidly expanding, global society.

team

"Deliver genuine VALUE"

Some people buy things casually and spontaneously. Books, clothes, coffee after lunch, and Sake...
On the other hand there are people who are always mundane to such situations.
We deliver VALUE to such "selective" customers.

team

"Establishing a SAKE distribution infrastructure"

We have ever only made distribution deals in restricted areas.
But nowadays in this global society, our merchandise has a global market potential.
"Establishing a SAKE distribution infrastructure" is our final target.
