Vision

To Change the Future of Japan in 100 Years

We first plan to gain footing in international markets by providing IT services, a sector that enables Japanese regional companies to immediately compete in the global marketplace. As we establish our customer base and expand our networks, we intend to sell products made in regional economies, by local craftsmen and companies, which have the utmost qualities available even by world standards. These products will be sold through the markets established by our IT services. With such opportunities, regional economies can continue to prosper without relinquishing their own unique values, simultaneously resolving their over-dependence on Tokyo as their sole income source.
We as ASA, believe in the value and potential of the local regions in Japan. We will endeavor to realize our vision, “To Change the Future of Japan in 100 Years” and show the world how an economy with a decreasing birthrate and aging population can continue to survive and flourish.
