The Next-Generation Heiwa Real Estate:
Taking on the Challenge of Becoming a Company
That Contributes to Revitalizing Districts

Heiwa Real Estate was founded in 1947 as the owner of buildings for stock exchanges in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya and elsewhere, which play a central role in Japan’s financial markets. The Company celebrated its 70th anniversary in July 2017. The basic mission of a real estate company is to provide an environment of convenience, comfort and safety that allows tenant companies and people to connect and demonstrate their capabilities, and have an affluent life. In other words, developing infrastructure is thought to be the livelihood of real estate companies. Therefore, I have come to believe that since we operate in the Nihonbashi Kabutocho and Kayabacho areas, we must also focus on enhancing Tokyo’s international competitiveness.

We announced our Revitalization Vision for Nihonbashi Kabutocho in 2014, and began creating a district where people connect, and where investment and growth are born. The Company has been located in Nihonbashi Kabutocho and Kayabacho since its establishment, enabling us to inherit and develop the unique qualities of this district. Our goal is “the classic look and feel” of Kabutocho, which is taking shape throughout the district in tandem with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government’s ongoing “Global Financial City: Tokyo” vision.
Redevelopment of Nihonbashi Kabutocho and Kayabacho is one component of this vision, and helps us fulfill our role of contributing to improving the infrastructure of Tokyo’s financial district.

We need to create value unique to Heiwa Real Estate and enhance our social presence as a facilitator of Japan’s financial districts. While maintaining steady growth, we will continue to evolve by enhancing our development, proposal and planning capabilities in order to take on various new challenges. In addition, I would like Heiwa Real Estate to position itself to contribute significantly to revitalization as part of the “Global Financial City: Tokyo” vision and in other urban districts, and to be a company that contributes more than ever to revitalizing districts.
I hope you will share our enthusiasm as we take on the challenge of creating the next-generation Heiwa Real Estate. We are counting on your continued support.
