As a total entertainment corporation, the Amuse Group continues to create high quality entertainment that enables all people to share enjoyment and excitement, including artists and our employees. Our core businesses include the following four major areas: the Artist Management Business centered on artists' activities; the Media Visual Business, which plans, produces, and sells visual contents; the Contents Business to manage, maintain, and leverage the rights generated by our day-to-day business activities; and the Place Management Business, which is independent from the other existing business models and covers, for example, the creation of entertainment spaces utilizing external contents such as theme parks.
By joining forces and creating synergy within the Amuse Group, we are looking to strengthen our corporate basis as a total culture-producing entertainment group, breaking the barrier of being just a talent agency.
