Japanese major pharmaceutical companies headquarters (listed on the stock exchange) are mainly located in Tokyo or Osaka. However, Nippon Shinyaku's head quarter is located in Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan.
Kyoto is a traditional city which has a long history of more than 1200 years. The city has a lot of cultural heritage sites, although modernization has changed the city. Our company feels it is an important mission to maintain our traditional culture. We have been having cultural initiatives such as making independent cultural documentary films and making these movies available to the general public for free; or publishing information about Kyoto to outside media to help promote Kyoto culture.
This "KYO-Gallery" will display selected stencil-dyed scenes of Kyoto once every two months. These pictures were used in our calendars for this 60 years.
