Japan
 The Kirishima International Music Festival
Since 2001, Kyocera has supported the Kirishima International Music Festival (Kirishima city, Kagoshima prefecture, Japan), which started in 1980, with the goal to provide students an opportunity to learn from outstanding musicians by experiencing their performances firsthand. Over sixty concerts and workshops are held every year, featuring musicians from around the world as invited performers and lecturers. The number of participants from overseas centering on Asia is increasing every year, and the Kirishima International Music Festival now enjoys growing popularity as one of Asia's major musical festivals.

 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.

In 2017, a special exhibition depicting the Battle of Toba-Fushimi, which determined the fate of the Meiji Restoration, was held. Invaluable items including a pictorial record showing the battle, soldier hats and cannons used in the battle, and a drawing of a house in which Sakamoto Ryoma took refuge after the Ikedaya Incident were on display to show a glimpse of the local history to visitors.
