Corporate Information

Message from CEO

We have been operating pachinko halls for over 60 years in Northeast Honshu, Japan, stretching in cities, townships and suburban areas in Tokyo, the nation’s capital and the Northeast prefecture of Fukushima Prefecture.

We can trace our origin back to 1950, when Mr. Tetsuyoshi Taniguchi, our founder and the late father of our Chairman, established our first pachinko hall in Mito City, Ibaraki Prefecture in East Japan, captivating the booming popularity of pachinko and the prosperity of the Japanese economy in the post-war era.

Since opening our door to pachinko players in 1950, we have stood by our corporate slogan of “Happy Time Creation”, placing primary focus on customer experience and goodwill.

This has allowed us to adapt to changing industry trends and customer preferences throughout our operating history and continually develop into an operator of 54 pachinko halls that we are today.

As a company that creates happiness of people, We will continue to place primary focus on customer experience and goodwill; and further improve our corporate value in the long run.
