Shochiku’s business is not limited to theatrical productions and motion pictures. We have a diverse business presence in various fields of entertainment. Firmly underlying our corporate philosophy are the ideals, convictions, and passion of Matsujiro and Takejiro, who spent their careers providing quality entertainment.
The brothers established another company called “Shochiku Kinema Gōmei-sha” in February 1920, entering the motion picture production and distribution business. Since then, the company has come to be called “Shochiku”, not the original “Matsutake.”
