Taiyo Oil Sponsors Ehime Performance of Shiki Theatre "Kokoro no Gekijo"

Taiyo Oil Co., Ltd. has been a supporter of Shiki Theatre Company, which conducts the “Kokoro no Gekijo” (Theater of the Heart) project, and a “Kokoro no Gekijo” performance was recently held in Ehime Prefecture.   
“Kokoro no Gekijo” performances are free-of-charge musicals to which elementary school students from across Japan are invited. The aim is to use musical theater to convey “important life lessons” related to the value of life, the spirit of altruism, and the joy of mutual trust, and to thereby “realize a spiritually rich society.”
Taiyo Oil approves of this initiative for the spiritual development of children and the building of an affluent society, and this year’s Ehime Prefecture performance marks the first time that the company has provided support for this project.        
Taiyo Oil intends to proactively participate in initiatives such as these so that children can move toward a bright future filled with hope.
