Message from the CEO

I was born in agriculture rich Shimotsuma City, Ibaraki prefecture, in 1974.

My childhood was spent chasing after frogs and grasshoppers in the paddy fields and cicadas amongst the pear trees, in the Kanto countryside where the rice fields spread across the horizon. My relatives were not only dairy and pork farmers but many were also self-employed, and running an operation was familiar to me. My mother’s home was a dairy farm so we were used to running around the cowshed, and I knew from that time the hard work without rest and what it’s like to operate things. My grandfather managed a farm with about 300 workers, and even though he passed away when I was still small and only have memories of his warm smile, he is said to have been a trusted figure in our community. My father and mother were high school educators, where my father was a hot-blooded high school baseball coach and school principal, very disciplined and educated children towards independence and strong ethical foundation. It was suffocating as a child but I don’t ever recall him telling us to “go study”.

After graduating from university, I did planning and design work as a first class architect, supervised overseeing of construction sites as a field director, and experienced the hardship of gathering technicians for organizational management. I then joined a venture company that were preparing to go public, and consulted on the effective use of construction and real estate, and played a part in the IPO. I was able to experience the thrill of being part of a venture company where your remuneration and treatment depended on knowledge and accomplishment regardless of how long you’ve worked in a company.

After the IPO, I experienced and learned from many accomplishments and pressures while in my 20s, towing an organization of around 30 as the head of consulting and strategic investing of real estate investment and business revitalization, engaging in investment strategy using large capital gained from the capital market, reaching for high revenue targets demanded by shareholders.

While struggling in the capital market, through the news and whatnot I saw the decline of the countryside including my hometown, and I felt day by day the danger that Japan’s future faced.

So at the age of 30, when my health broke down from working night and day, I decided to quit and “work for the declining countryside rather than for the capital market”.

Thereafter, through conducting seminars in various regions and cities on regional finance, I became a financial advisor for establishing funds for Takamatsu Marugamecho shopping district (B, C Wards). It was there that I realized all over again the importance of agriculture in regional production. No matter how much capital flows to the countryside, if products from those regions are not value, it is meaningless.

“Agriculture is the key to vitalizing the rural regions.”

I founded Ginza Noen Co. Ltd. in 2007 to revolutionize the outdated agricultural industry.

In a life full of twists and turns, using the skills I gained in architecture, the know-how from real estate, knowledge about finance, I aim to deliver to the world the agricultural technology and the growth of the agricultural industry from Japan.
