Gathering various knowledge and ideas, we produce new industry and culture through interaction and contribute to the realization of the society that each one of the citizens can have hope and enjoy radiant life. As a central stronghold of the paradigm shift, we also continue to provide people around the world with new experience and impression.
We are now approaching a time of great social change. The advanced technology, such as AI, IoT and robotics, has more and more influence not only on the industry but also people’s living and the way of life. On the other hand, more and more problems of modern industrial society are becoming apparent. We believe that rich sensitivity and fertile imagination of each person are important in this current society. In other words, a brain that each person bears can be the most valuable resources and culture and arts are indispensable to generate such power. Knowledge and ideas grown on such backgrounds will solve the problems and draw a question for the future and a new interpretation of the world.
I have created a human network of various natures and talents in Japan and that was why I named my company SUPERSTATION after a cross-disciplinary bridgehead. Now, the purpose of the launch of SUPERSTATION International, Ltd. is to spread this idea, to produce a field for knowledge from Asia and the world to gather, and to realize a base of human resources ecosystem in Hong Kong. We are to contribute with them to solve problems that human beings are facing.
Everyone agrees that technology is important, however, it is necessary to add the viewpoint of psychology and feeling of humans on top of it. Although the Internet and the social media are at the height, we place importance on seeing each other, establishing Face-to-Face relationship and creating values through mutual trust. Making the best use of past experience, SUPERSTATION International, Ltd. provides a new experience by combing the advanced technology and novel ideas in the harmony of value and culture from around the world.
