I will show you around my office in the Oyana headquarters. This room had been used as the president's office since before I joined the company. There are many things that make you feel that history, such as items received from guests from various countries and the swords adorned with the crest of the Endo family. I spend my time in Oyana, Tokyo, and overseas, a third of the year in each place respectively. In Oyana there are factory-related jobs, Gifu industrial association jobs, et cetera. Many people visit here, yet I have some time to myself as well. I take some time to reflect and read the weekly reports. There are 80 weekly reports coming in daily from all my employees and I read all of them, trying to read the changes in their feelings. Since the business reports summarized by each departmental manager arrive and the article deadline for the monthly newsletter ‘Kai Family’ is the 10th of each month, I am busy at the beginning of each month. I do not like using a ghostwriter and every word I write down is my own.
I also look at KAI 's Facebook in this room, hitting many ‘Likes’ as well!
