Corporate Symbol

Significance of the Corporate Symbol.

A symbolic representation of Otsuka Group Corporate Philosophy, the corporate symbol adopts the initial “O” of the corporate name as its motif. Representing the sky above, the large “O” is rendered in gradations of Otsuka BLUE intended to signify “openness”, “freedom”, “intelligence” and “future”.

The small “O” in Otsuka RED represents the focused energy of Otsuka, the wellspring of these tenets.

Offsetting the two forms poised in balance, the Otsuka name is spelled out in an open and friendly typeface. The corporate symbol conveys Otsuka group’s energetic commitment to human happiness through good health.

Monuments reflecting the philosophy of

Otsuka Pharmaceutical

Otsuka’s Human Resource Development Institute is an employee training center located in Tokushima, Japan, the birthplace of the Otsuka group of companies.

Within the grounds are three monuments that represent Otsuka’s commitment to “jissho” (actualization) and “sozosei” (creativity), two guiding principles embedded in our DNA.

Giant Tomato Tree

In the Tomato Hall at the Human Resource Development Institute, thousands of plump, red tomatoes grow on only a few tomato plants overlooking visitors. Each tomato “tree” grows stalks stretching over 10 meters.

However, these tomatoes are not a special variety; we grow them using hydroponics, liberating its roots from the soil.

Normally, a tomato plant only produces 50 to 60 fruit, but if you change the way you cultivate it, it has the potential to produce 10,000.

This reminds us that if we think differently and free ourselves from norms, we can unlock our unlimited potential.

Bent Giant Cedar

Located inside the entrance to the auditorium Vega Hall is a curiously bent giant cedar tree trunk, with another trunk lying across it, resting on a single point.

Despite appearing precariously unsteady, this pair maintain a perfect balance.

This serves to break down stereotypes and is a constant reminder of the importance of thinking differently.

Floating Stones

In this aquatic garden large polished stones appear to defy the laws of physics by floating on water.

These gently curved granite stones represent Otsuka Pharmaceutical’s spirit and compassion in improving the lives of everyone through better health.

This garden provides a relaxing space that stimulates creativity and helps foster the generation of new ideas.
