Basic approach

We believe that a company, as a social entity, must not only fulfill its minimum responsibilities of compliance with laws and regulations and contributing to the interests of society, but also develop its business operations in ways (and with content) that meet, or exceed, the apparent and potential needs of citizens, local communities, and society as a whole.

Local communities policy

With our medium- to long-term goal of protecting the rich natural environment and culture that enriches life, and energizing people in the region and community, we pursue co-creation with governments and local communities, cooperate with local communities, governments, universities, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and many other stakeholders to solve local and social issues and strive to enrich society.

Contribution to local government and community

We are participating in activities with high social significance and providing support for natural disaster recovery through Eikyufumetsu points exchange and donations through Saison Card & UC Card payments.

Education for the Next-Generation and Financial Education


We take steps to educate the next generation and give them financial education by targeting young people across a number of age groups, from middle-school to university students. Our main activity for this purpose is School Visit: SAISON TEACHER, in which our employees visit schools and give classes on finance to help students deepen their financial knowledge. The primary purpose of this program is to help students, mainly middle- and high-school students, grow into independent consumers.


Initiatives with Reitaku University

In January 2023, as part of the Hiroike Institute‘s educational partnership agreement with Reitaku University, we began accepting applications for the Reitaku University original credit card, a service developed mainly by students with the support of our employees. Through KASSAI, a cloud-based support payment service that collects application fees for Fintertech Co., Ltd., which promotes the creation of next-generation financial services using cutting-edge technology, in December 2023 we also sought support for the student-led Kashiwa Firework Festival Project (Kashiwa City, Chiba Prefecture). Since the agreement was signed, industry-academia collaboration efforts have been progressing
