Mitsui Fudosan proactively undertakes endeavors that support culture and promote cultural exchange in a mission to fulfill its responsibilities as a member of society engaged in urban development.
Continuing from the co-sponsorship of the national showing of Yuta to Fushigi na Nakamatachi (Yuta and his enchanting friends) in 2007, performances of the Kokoro no Gekijyo (theatre of the heart) project, which speaks to the heart of children through the sensations of theatrical productions, are being co-sponsored in 2008.

Mitsui Fudosan has been supporting and co-sponsoring this summer tradition that inherits the culture of shitamachi (the area of Tokyo extending from Taito, Chiyoda and Chuo Wards across the Sumida River to Sumida and Koto Wards where traditionally many merchants, craftsmen, etc. resided) since 1985. Moreover, First Facilities Co., Ltd. performs the cleanup after the festival.
Mitsui Fudosan has been sponsoring this music festival since 1988 for the purpose of contributing to global cultural exchange through the introduction of great music from around the world. The Tokyo Summer Festival has become established as a full-scale music festival held in Tokyo.

The Special Olympics is an international sports organization offering individuals with intellectual disabilities an array of year-round sports training as well as athletic competition as a venue to showcase their development from training.
Mitsui Fudosan has been co-sponsoring donations as a supporter since 1995, but this time employees also took part as volunteers in the quest for visible forms of social philanthropy.
The tasks they were in charge of were acting as guides to athletes* at the lodging facility, providing meal and bathing support, and patrolling emergency exits at night. Fortunately, the volunteer activities were completed successfully without any incidents.
It was a profoundly worthwhile activity to have been of even the slightest bit of help to the athletes. Going ahead, we would like to review the ideal form of Mitsui Fudosan's social philanthropy and keep expanding the range of activities.
(*) In Special Olympics, individuals with intellectual disabilities who participate in sports activities are referred to as “athletes.”
