  • Why Business Planning in a Research Institute?

    One of the characteristics of our research institute is that it includes an organization for business planning. Given the need to conduct research with a focus on the social implementation and commercialization of advanced technologies, the role played by the business planning section is significant.

    To conduct research and development, it is important to "imagine the future society." This is a very difficult task, but it is also the appeal of business planning. We constantly raise our antenna for information gathering to understand the latest trends, and we hope to use the advanced technologies we develop to move the world forward.

  • My aspirations through work

    I joined SoftBank with the aim of enhancing Japan's global presence.

    Through my experiences abroad, I have come to appreciate the high level of trust that people have in Japan and the Japanese people, which has been built by our predecessors. With a strong desire to further elevate this trust and pass it on to future generations, I work every day with great aspiration.

  • My aspirations in life
    I want to spend my days working and enjoying my private life, so that my family and I can always share laughter and good times together.
