Message from the Chairman

Tokyu Group is aiming for sustainable growth over the next 100 years.

With our transportation business serving as a base, we at Tokyu Group are pursuing a wide array of real estate, life service, hotel and resort, and other businesses that serve everyday needs. In order to improve everyday life, we will continue to identify customers’ unrecognized needs and offer innovative services to meet society’s demands. We will do this by combining the diverse business functions of Tokyu Group’s companies in their various fields of endeavor. Our aim is to create increased value in communities served by Tokyu train lines and in daily life.

Tokyu Group traces its roots back to the Den-en-toshi Company, which was established in 1918 to develop residential areas, and build and maintain rail lines. For the Den-en-toshi Company, developing residential areas went beyond simply preparing land for construction; it meant harmonizing nature with a city environment and creating communities that offered infrastructure for daily life, along with entertainment and cultural and educational channels. The underlying ideals of that approach have been carried forward—for example—with the Tokyu Tama Den-en-toshi development project. Now, as Japan’s population declines, we are continuing to create beautiful living environments by working with government and local residents to develop sustainable communities in various locations where multiple generations can continue to live together.

In Shibuya, where Tokyu Group is headquartered, we are moving forward with a major redevelopment project. Parts of this once-in-a-century endeavor, Shibuya Stream and SHIBUYA BRIDGE opened for business in September 2018, and Shibuya Scramble Square Phase I (East Building) and SHIBUYA FUKURAS are scheduled to follow suit in November 2019. Changing day by day, Shibuya is evolving as a place where a diversity of people can work, play, live, and form new connections. We believe that this type of urban development will allow us to play an even greater role in making Shibuya an entertainment city and a hotbed of business and cultural innovation.

Also slated for November is the opening of MINAMIMACHIDA GRANDBERRY PARK, which I believe will make this area along the Tokyu Tama Den-en Line even more attractive. Meanwhile, in the Shinjuku area, we began implementing the Shinjuku TOKYU MILANO Redevelopment Plan in August 2019, with completion scheduled for the 2022 fiscal year. The projects mentioned here are just a few examples of the work Tokyu Group is engaged in along Tokyu train lines and in other locations as well.

To mark a new start as it heads into its next hundred years of operation, TOKYU CORPORATION changed its Japanese trade name from “Tokyo Kyuko Dentetsu Kabushiki Kaisha” to “Tokyu Kabushiki Kaisha” in September 2019. In addition, the railway business was spun off as a separate company - Tokyu Dentetsu Kabushiki Kaisha (TOKYU RAILWAYS Co., Ltd.) - in October to enhance its ability to respond to business environment changes and growth opportunities going forward.

With safety and security as core values for all of its businesses, Tokyu Group will continue to pursue greater comfort and satisfaction for the communities it serves. To remain a brand that our stakeholders love and trust, Tokyu Group will move forward ready to draw on all of its resources to fulfill its core aims of creating communities, building companies, and engaging in human resource development all with sustainability in mind. We are grateful for the ongoing patronage and support of our stakeholders as we advance our business activities.
