About the Philosophy

How the Philosophy Was Created

While I was managing Kyocera, I encountered many difficulties. Although I often struggled, I was able to surmount all obstacles. The Kyocera Philosophy was born under these circumstances as I constantly debated with myself about my life and work.

The Kyocera Philosophy is a life philosophy that I acquired through practice. Its basis is "living in the right way as a human being." I have thus been encouraging our employees to follow this philosophy, as I believe it will make each employee happy while making our company prosperous.
