Akiko Sakaguchi (坂口 暁子) / CEO

“Culture” is the “system” of perceptions and practices that created and inherited by us, human being. It is a continuous habit that was repeatedly nurtured by many different backgrounds of historical and geographical events. It is also a miracle caused by the wisdom and creativity of people and the indescribable power of nature.
The ARK project, our aims is to bring the world together by understanding and connecting each other’s culture.
We has always been one step ahead to practice and cherish the Japanese hospitality of “Omotenashi”. We strive to provide our customer memories of joy and happiness by the culture of love and creativity of Japanese.
