Policy and Concept
The Tokyo Tatemono Group believes realizing an affluent society through various cultural and social contribution activities helps the sustainable growth of our own businesses.
Therefore, we engage in a variety of social contribution activities, such as cultural and arts activities, educational support, sports promotion, and disaster recovery support.
We contribute urban development, community building in addition to building an affluent society as a member of the local community.
Artist Support at THE GALLERY in the Brillia LOUNGE
Tokyo Tatemono is providing support for various cultural activities such as arts and sports. As part of these activities, we operate THE GALLERY as an exhibition space setup in a corner of the Brillia LOUNGE on the first floor of the Tokyo Tatemono Yaesu Building as a place to introduce up-and-coming artists and their artwork.
THE GALLERY introduced works from four groups of artists in 2017. In addition, the Brillia ART AWARD 2018 was held to determine the artists to introduce in 2018 through a public offering. This award not only judges complete artworks but also production plans. Winners are given a production grant of 200,000 yen. The works that are created are displayed in stages throughout 2018.
Edo Machi Jyuku to Learn about Tokyo Culture Held
The Edo Machi Jyuku is a program to learn various things from the history to the way of shouldering the Mikoshi to more fully enjoy the Sanno Festival, which is one of the three largest festivals in Japan. Tokyo Tatemono is supporting local town councils and other associations as a secretariat that conducts planning and operations.
We broadly recruit participants from inside and outside of the company and invite people with a deep relationship to the Sanno Festival as lecturers to talk about how to enjoy the Sanno Festival from many different perspectives.
These activities became an opportunity for not only the local residents but also office workers to learn more deeply about the history and culture of the region, and we hope at least one more member of the town will pass down the culture.
Urban Development Leader Education Program to Learn and Think about City Building Held
A facility called Kyobashi Environmental Station that promotes low-carbon cities is located on the 6th floor of Tokyo Square Garden owned and managed by Tokyo Tatemono. Kyobashi Environmental Station is holding a free series of seminars to learn about building eco cities over roughly six months every year.
In 2017, the Urban Development Leader Education Program was held for the purpose of developing human resources who will be entrusted with future city building. Based on two hours of classroom learning each time for a total of eight times between May and December, students experience the process from the ability to solve local problems to the creation of new ideas. In the final class in December, the local problems and solutions each team had been looking into were announced.
Tokyo Tatemono plans, operates, and holds this seminar with the Institute of Sustainable City Forum.
Supporting Disabled Sports
Tokyo Tatemono has been an official partner of Japan Para-sports Association since August 2015 as part of its social contribution activities.
We will actively support para-sports through initiatives to popularize para-sports and take part in realizing the philosophy of para-sport for creating a vibrant coexisting society.
In 2017, we promoted people to watch the events by broadcasting event and competition information inside the Group and reaffirmed the recognition of para-sports in an even greater number of employees by watching and cheering on the competitions.
Moreover, we acquired the naming rights to the Shin-Toyosu Brillia Running Stadium track and field facility that opened in December 2016 and cooperate in operating the facility. The Shin-Toyosu Brillia Running Stadium combines an artificial sports leg development laboratory where people with disabilities can train side-by-side with everyone else.
Earthquake Reconstruction Support Through Rice Planting
The Tokyo Tatemono Group aims to build an affluent society through reconstruction after the Great East Japan Earthquake and interaction between the city and farming villages, and it supports rice planting activities for the local Teneimai rice from Ten-ei village in Fukushima Prefecture.
Hatoriko Highland Regina Forest Co., Ltd. owned by Tokyo Tatemono Group up until 2016 was located on the outskirts of Ten-ei Village, which began support and other activities with roughly 100 employee volunteers participating.
Employees and their families experience farming such as the rice-planting in spring, cutting weeds in summer, and the harvest in fall while interacting with the local farmers.
The company and these individuals are unified in deepening their understanding of Ten-ei Village and supporting the reconstruction of Fukushima from Ten-ei Village through these activities.
Supporting Patients with Incurable Diseases and Their Families
Apartments Tower Kachidoki rental condominiums owned by Tokyo Tatemono has concepts to both support the raising of children and to co-exist with the community. The building provides facilities such as certified childcare, family house, pediatric clinic, and residence for a generation raising children. The family house, which is operated by the NPO Family House*, is a second home to use as a residence facility for families that travel to urban hospitals from afar to care for their children with intractable diseases such as pediatric cancer.
Tokyo Tatemono is empathetic to this activity and provides a 130 ㎡ house free of charge that is equipped with two Japanese-style rooms and a common room in the Apartments Tower Kachidoki close to the National Cancer Center Hospital and St. Luke's International Hospital.
