Message from Takamasa Morimitsu, Representative Director

The President, Takamasa Morimitsu
Will you help us create a new genre of souvenir bun, as we strive to win a gold medal for our sweet buns?

My name is Takamasa Morimitsu and I am the Representative Director of Hattendo Co., Ltd.

Hattendo is a problem-solving company, a company that takes things and turns them into experiences and then sells them.”
We understand the latent needs of our customers, needs that our customers themselves are not yet aware of, and strive to realize those needs.

Have you ever given serious thought to your own life?
“A person without dreams is a person without ideals. A person without ideals is a person without plans. A person without plans is a person without action. A person without action is a person without success. Hence, a person without dreams will be a person without success.”
These are the words of Yoshida Shoin, a famous samurai at the end of the Edo Shogunate.

If you live a mundane life without goals to aim for, your life will be over before you know it.
You may not experience hardship in such a life, but neither will you achieve anything. What sort of life would that be?
Are you giving serious thought to your life, keeping your goals and your dreams in mind?
The staff here at Hattendo, with the vision of opening up a new food culture to the world, aim to create a company that as many people as possible will be happy to have encountered.
If you have ever, however fleetingly, thought that you would like to take on a challenge, that you would like to try something and make the most of your life, please come and hear what we have to say.

Hattendo’s management philosophy is “Creating great products, great people, and a great company.”
An important element in the creation of great products is interpersonal relationships (communication).
One could even say that work is all about interpersonal relationships. At Hattendo, we hold recreational and other activities once a month, to create an environment where people can grow together while learning in an enjoyable space.

Our corporate spirit is “Spirit of Challenge.”
Maintaining a sense of independence, single-mindedly discovering the value of the task before you and carrying through with that task. This will surely lead to a “spirit of challenge.”
If you always have that spirit of challenge and work hard, it will never be a waste.
The right effort will always reap rewards.
So you too can grasp that good fortune when the time comes, take up those challenges every day.
If you want to take on the challenge of creating a new food culture together with us, we will be waiting for you.
