To contribute to society through helping the local community with the appliance of “TOMOIKI”
The spirit of “TOMOIKI” that lives in Suzuyo Group. “TOMOIKI” includes the idea of a spiritual foundation that links Suzuyo Group with the local community. In order to realize “TOMOIKI in society”, we are working to support various fields such as sports, education, culture and welfare.
Supporting citizens and local sports promotion
Since 1998, Suzuyo Group has been supporting the operation of the J-League professional soccer team “Shimizu S-Pulse”.
As an enterprise born and raised in Shimizu, Suzuyo wishes to listen to the voices of the people in the community who support S-Pulse.
And through the support of S-Pulse, we contribute to the promotion of citizens and local sports.
Shizuoka Institute of Science and Technology
Aiming for further development of the region
In Shizuoka Prefecture, while various industries have been developed, and various advanced technologies have been accumulated, the placement of higher education and research institutes in science and technology hasn’t been sufficient.
While there is a strong demand for the enhancement and expansion of university education and research systems in each sector, in 1991, the first scientific university in Shizuoka Prefecture, opened known as the “Shizuoka Institute of Science and Technology” in Fukuroi city.
Verkehr Shimizu Port Terminal Museum
In order to convey the old days and the present of Shimizu Port
“Verkehr” means “traffic” in German.
The museum puts the spotlight on ports where people and oceans connect with each other and preserves and exhibits a number of materials about the history of Shimizu Port, where Suzuyo Group Originated from. We have supported the museum since 1977.
Ippekiro Minaguchiya is an historic Japanese-style hotel that served as preliminary accommodation for feudal lords in the Edo Period and as a hotel from the Meiji through the Showa Periods.
In the past it has attracted many politicians, artists and cultural figures.
Suzuyo Group opened the “Minaguchiya Gallary”in 1999 in order to tell the expansive story of the hotel that had survived for 400 years.
Welfare facility “Shishihara-so”
To use welfare service
In 1975, the 7th Yohei Suzuki established the “Tamagashikai” a social welfare corporation to aid the local community of intellectual disabilities and handicapped. Later in 1976, Tamagashikai opened the “Shishihara-so” facility to expand and assist these groups who are in need.
This voluntary support further expanded and opened the “Misuzu” and “Karin” facility for employment/career guidance, “Daiichi Daini Kashiwa Ryo” for group home shelter, and “Suzuran” for consultation support. Tamagashikai and Suzuyo Group continue to actively deliver the humanitarian support to those who are in need.
Local contribution activity
In the spirit of “TOMOIKI” such as fundraising activities, and volunteer activities, we are thinking about what we can do as a member of the local community and connecting it to contribution activities.
Today, we place importance on the “gratitude” of the areas that support our business activities, and every employee participates in volunteer activities.
