Greetings from the Founder

Representative Takahiko Shimoji

"To contribute to as many people as possible.
That is our mission.

When I was a child, I once fell from a tree and broke my arm. At that time, I also lost the ability to move the fingers of my hand, but my father cured me using wildflowers from the fields. When I caught a cold, my grandmother gave me an infusion of wildflowers from the fields to drink. Even as a child, I was fascinated by the mysterious charm of medicinal herbs, and in my 20s I began to devote myself to the study of medicinal herbs in earnest.

Gradually, I began to want as many people as possible to know the charm and efficacy of the medicinal herbs I cultivated with my own hands, and I continued to distribute them without regard to profitability, telling people to "try them because they are good for your health. At first, people around me were skeptical, saying, "What a strange man!" and "Is it really good?" At the beginning, people around him were skeptical, wondering if it was really good.

At that time, when no one would have thought that a single blade of grass could become a business, my wife and I started our current business together. I grew medicinal herbs while my wife worked hard, carrying our products on her small back as she traveled across the country with our crying children by her side. As we steadily worked with our customers, we gradually began to receive comments of joy and gratitude from those who had recovered their health.

To this day, I still plow the fields and cultivate medicinal herbs every day to keep in mind the feelings I had when the company was founded. And with these three words "Sincerity," "Cleanliness," and "Diligence" as our watchwords, together with our employees, we continue to strive to bring "healthy and happy smiles" to as many people as possible. To contribute to the health of more people across the sea. I believe this is the mission that I have been assigned today.
