Japan
 The Kirishima International Music Festival
Since 2001, Kyocera has supported the Kirishima International Music Festival (Japan) with the hope of providing students an opportunity to learn from outstanding musicians by experiencing their performances firsthand. Concerts and workshops are held every year, featuring musicians from around the world as invited performers and lecturers. Photo: Concert at the Kirishima International Music Festival

 Kyoto Hanatouro Project
Kyocera supports the Kyoto Hanatouro Project, in which lights and flowers evoking a rich Japanese ethos decorate Kyoto’s prominent streets, temples, shrines and other historic cultural assets. More than two million people enjoyed fantastic night scenery during 2015 events in Higashiyama and Arashiyama. In 2016, Hotel Princess Kyoto Co., Ltd began providing volunteer Information Desk staffing and distributing promotional literature and questionnaires. Photo: Townscape vividly lit by street lanterns

 The Kyocera Museum of Art

The Kyocera Museum of Art, which is open to the public and free of charge, was established at 1998 at Kyocera’s headquarters building (Kyoto, Japan). Many works of art are on permanent display, including Picasso’s copper plate print series 347, paintings, sculptures, and Qianlong glass from China.

A special exhibition was held in 2015 to display ancient offerings dedicated by the shogunate government during the Edo period (1603-1868) to Yasaka Shrine in Kyoto. These rare exhibits have not been widely available for public viewing and were received enthusiastically by visitors.
