 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.

 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. (a Kyocera Group company) 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.

In 2016, a special exhibition on the imperial court culture of early-modern Kyoto was jointly held with neighboring Jonangu Shrine. Invaluable items related to the coronation ceremony conducted in the beginning of a new Emperor’s reign and other important rituals as well as various items associated with Tofukumon-in were on display for the first time in about 40 years. The elegant court culture inherited in Kyoto was on display from the foundation of the Heian-kyo Capital in 794.
