We set up social infrastructure in the form of super drugstores that serve as community hubs, bringing convenience and helping to prevent illness.
In this way we touch lives and make people happy. We also promote regional health care and regional nursing care to benefit local communities.
We aim to help people in local communities lead full, healthy lives based on our ability to promote health, establish close community ties, and grow, thereby contributing to the welfare of regional societies.
With the theme of illness prevention, we impress and satisfy local customers by providing “expertise” and “convenience” for health and beauty and by strengthening the functions of healthcare facilities.
"Our mission is to create a future of comfort, health, enjoyment, and beauty, without forgetting the enlightened objective of providing relief to people in need.
We hold our vision high and tread a lawful and proper path of business, constantly creating demand."
"We believe that human beings have deep and limitless potential.
Our management philosophy embodies an organism comprising of gratitude, innovation, and integration."
Origin of the “Kirindo” name
The name derives from a “kirin”-an auspicious mythical creature (qilin or Chinese unicorn) known in East Asian cultures. The name embodies three wishes—that our business will be able to soar like a qilin in the air; that we can offer people health and make the world as wonderful as when a qilin appears; and that we can always be a pure embodiment of excellence, like a child prodigy (kirinji in Japanese).
