About the Partnership


Rakuten's partnership with the Vissel Kobe professional soccer team is
grounded in our belief that sport has the power to make life richer
and more fulfilling. This power was borne out when Vissel Kobe became a
symbol of recovery in the aftermath of the Great Hanshin Earthquake,
which devastated Kobe and many surrounding areas in 1995.
“One Team, One Family, One Dream - To become the No.1 Club in Asia”:
The club slogan encapsulates a tradition of players,
fans and the local community coming together to pursue a common dream.

Tohoku Rakuten
Golden Eagles

Since their founding in 2004 as Japan’s first new professional baseball franchise awarded in 50 years, the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles have gone from strength to strength. Buoyed by the support of their dedicated fans in the Tohoku region and around the country, they won their first Japan Series Championship in 2013. In accordance with their motto of being “The Baseball Entertainment Company,” the Rakuten Eagles strive to deliver passion and inspiration through baseball. They have also had much success in breathing new life into Japan’s professional baseball industry, adding innovative leisure and entertainment facilities to their home ball park and incorporating new technologies such as virtual reality into their player training program.

Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra

At Rakuten, we believe that music and the arts have the power to bring joy to people and create a better society.

Based on this belief, we have been supporting the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra since 2010. With the longest history of any orchestra in Japan, the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra is distinguished not only for its active and varied schedule, embracing symphonic concerts, opera and ballet, but also its work in promoting cultural exchange through education and overseas tours.

These qualities of tradition, excellence, teamwork and innovation are ones we admire and share at Rakuten.
