About Takeda Global Headquarters

Takeda appointed critically acclaimed art director Kashiwa Sato as creative director for Takeda Global Headquarters. In developing the foundation of the design concept, Sato drew upon Takeda’s role as a pharmaceutical company to nurture people’s “life force”. Natural materials such as wood were used extensively to express the company’s warmth, while the designs reflect the company’s corporate identity as a modern global company rooted in Japan.

About Nihonbashi-honcho 2nd District Project

The Nihonbashi-honcho 2nd District Project is part of the greater Nihonbashi Revitalization Plan, a collaborative public, private and community initiative based on the concept of “creating while retaining and reviving”. In September 2016, construction of the ground level section of Fukutoku Garden, a public plaza space adjacent to Fukutoku Shrine, was completed on the project site. The opening of the Takeda Global Headquarters building marks the completion of the entire project. On this occasion, Suigian (, a new theater style restaurant and lounge located on the basement floor of Fukutoku Garden, will hold its grand opening. Going forward, Mitsui Fudosan will continue to actively collaborate through the Nihonbashi Revitalization Plan public-private initiative, to bring new appeal to the area and support the continued revitalization of Nihonbashi.
