Corporate Philosophy

In the last one hundred and forty years in accordance with our beliefs “Tradition is not maintained but built” we have made tremendous progress prudently and daringly.
We’ve had a tense time in our long history but thanks to our great staff, we’ve managed to overcome many difficulties. The great staff are just one thing that is a valuable asset to our company and we’re proud that we continue to employ such people.
The most important thing for vessel operations is well trained staff. Through great endeavor we foster and educate our own crews over a long time, ensuring the safety of operations by support from the shore staff who are rich in experience and knowledge.
Everyone continues to devote their time and effort with frontier spirit and enthusiasm and without content to improve our situation.
Moreover we grapple positively with environmental problems and strive to pass a healthy, natural environment to the next generation.
