We carry out educational activities, such as work experience opportunities for students. We also support and participate in local events and cleanups.
The staff of Shimoda Aquarium visit and teach at preschools and elementary and junior high schools in Shizuoka and other prefectures. Through these visits, our staff contribute to teaching people about marine life ecology, raising their interest in protecting ocean habitats, and keeping the oceans clean.
Support for the Japan Service Dog Association
We have supported the growth and use of service dogs since 2010.
All of our establishments conduct local cleanups. The Shimoda Aquarium organizes cleanups that local residents can participate in, including cleanups of beaches where loggerhead sea turtles lay their eggs.
Our head office in Bunkyo City, Tokyo, hosts a traveling sale of bread made by centers for disabled workers every month. By buying bread, we help increase the employment of people with disabilities and their participation in society.

- Preserving cultural assets and historical architecture
Since the time of our founding, we have owned many valuable cultural assets and historical architecture. As part of our SDGs, we are working to preserve them for future generations.
Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo
The property was named Chinzanso by Aritomo Yamagata in 1878, and after a turbulent 140 years, the garden continues to deeply move visitors with its verdant beauty and magnificent form. Inside the garden are various historical architecture, such as the three-story pagoda—which is said to have been built during the Muromachi period—and the Zangetsu teahouse, both of which are Tangible Cultural Properties. Other historical artifacts include the Hannyaji Temple Stone Lantern and Rakan stone statues from the drawings of Ito Jakuchu. The cultural properties went through three years of maintenance starting in 2009.
Hakone Kowakien Kihinkan
The Kihinkan is a sukiya-zukuri style house built in 1918 as a secondary home as a secondary home of Heitaro Fujita. The interior decoration is said to have taken three years to complete and was made with the most advanced technology at the time. Heitaro invited a gardener from Kyoto to Hakone to build the spacious Japanese garden. Gazing at it from the living quarters is a pleasant experience. The building currently serves as a soba restaurant.
Hakone Kowakien Geihinkan
Geihinkan was a village head's residence built in 1875 by carpenters who specialized in building temples and shrines. The structure is made of pine, chestnut, and other materials, and the roof, of corrugated sheets and iron plates brought from England. The second floor has a large room made for sericulture the size of 60 tatami mats. Its flooring was bamboo to increase ventilation. The building was turned into a teppanyaki and shabushabu restaurant in May 2016, while keeping the original beams and pillars intact. Come and have an unforgettable time in this historical building.
Ever since it was founded in 1883, the Mikawaya Ryokan has been visited by many writers and artists. The entrance of the main building has a hip-and-gable roof with bow-shaped eaves, and the lounge has a Western-style interior with a stucco ceiling. The guest rooms are organized into squares, while the private baths have aesthetic ceilings resembling paper umbrellas, and a restaurant faces the courtyard. The hallway is lined with windows, and there are other sukiya-style touches throughout the building. Guests can appreciate Japan's traditional decorations. You can also see remnants of the Taisho and Meiji eras, back when the building opened as a hotel for guests from abroad. Come and appreciate this beautiful Japanese architecture that was ahead of its time.
Support for the Fujita Museum
The Fujita Museum was established in 1951 by Denzaburo Fujita—the founder of Fujita—and his two oldest sons, Heitaro and Tokujiro. The museum opened to the public in 1954, featuring a collection of oriental antique art collected since the beginning of the Meiji era and during the Taisho era. Denzaburo and his sons were well versed in antiques and tea ceremonies, and they had collected about 2,000 articles of paintings, calligraphy, ceramics, sculptures, lacquerware, metalwork, dyed textiles, and archaeological artifacts, which are now stored in the museum. Among the articles, 9 are national treasures, and 53 are designated as Important Cultural Properties. Fujita Kanko supports the Fujita Museum by providing funds and PR in order to connect to our roots and preserve these cultural assets.
