Create and deliver culture to move to a new stage

Thank you for your continued understanding and support for the Amuse Group.

Soon it will be 40 years since I launched Amuse in a condominium in Daikanyama in 1978. While the circumstances surrounding us have changed dramatically, the essence of our business has not changed at all: It remains to discover and nurture richly talented artists and deliver their works to society.

Meanwhile, without contenting ourselves with the status quo, we have been incessantly seeking to create something new and unprecedented.

Ten years ago, I watched Fuerza Bruta for the first time in New York. To date, it has fascinated at least five million spectators in 60 or more cities in 30 countries around the world. I have long hoped to make this spectacle available in Japan in a more innovative form. It will finally be performed in Japan this coming summer.

Fuerza Bruta is an all-inclusive performing arts show in which the performers dance energetically in a 360-degree space full of illumination and sound to dynamic dancing music consisting of an attractive melody and drumbeats. Taking the form of the latest production inspired by the Japanese culture, the show will be performed in a dedicated theater in Shinagawa under the title of WA!- Wonder Japan Experience.

It is a non-verbal work that integrates content that has been well received around the world with the Japanese culture. Launched just before the Olympic Games in Tokyo in 2020 when the Japanese culture itself will be attracting global interest, it will undoubtedly present Japanese culture in a new way and will be able to be performed all over the world in the future. I hope that you will pay attention to this extravaganza and enjoy this high quality entertainment that the Amuse Group has been seeking.

We look forward to your continued understanding and support for the Amuse Group as we work toward creating and delivering culture.

As of June, 2017

Take a step forward to be a reborn Amuse

Let me start by expressing my sincere gratitude for your continued generous support for the Amuse Group and its artists.

Thankfully, our existing business is performing well, mainly in the artist management business. We are proud to continuously produce entertainment that is enjoyed by both domestic and overseas customers. In parallel, we are seeking to cultivate new business domains which are the place management business such us "TOKYO ONE PIECE TOWER" and the apparel business on top of our core business, the artist management.

October 2018 will mark the 40th anniversary of our foundation. With this key milestone in mind, we have defined the period starting this coming fall as the 40th anniversary commemoration period. During this period, we will undertake several projects and implement new strategies. This is not merely aimed at working toward producing high quality entertainment, but also at reviewing the business circumstances surrounding us, our internal structure and our mechanism of creating businesses and other day-to-day operations in order to carry out bold reforms.

On the threshold of our 40th anniversary, we are making preparations in a bid to take strong steps as a reborn Amuse. We hope that you will pay attention to our future movements. We will continue to work hard to make sure that our artists and their works will be familiar to you. We appreciate your continued understanding and support.
