CEO’s MESSAGE

WE CARRY ON THE PIONEER SPIRIT
TO STAY INSPIRED FOR THE FUTURE.
When Classic Japan Ltd. was established in 1977, domestic products dominated the Japan cut-flower market, while imported cut flowers just accounted for less than 1% of the market share.
Since then, with supports of our stakeholders including our precious overseas suppliers and domestic customers, we developed ourselves through continuous process of trial and error, as a pioneer in the imported cut-flower industry. Today, the imported cut-flowers have become essential to Japanese floral culture, playing a key role in supporting the industry together with domestic products.
We believe our role is not only to deliver flowers, but also to connect hearts among people. By bringing flowers grown with passion from faraway lands to our customers’ hands in Japan, we hope to encourage people to share various thoughts and feelings experienced in their life stage.
Over the years, we have built trust with our partners abroad and customers at home. Always with gratitude in mind, each and every one of us will continuously make earnest efforts to solidify and develop even more trust with all of our stakeholders.
