I went to the employee company trip at Izukyu Shimoda, a traditional annual event on the first weekend of September that is going on for 25 years. Family members can also participate as well.
The trip is very open and has a lot of free activities, but we also got together for a hotel buffer dinner and enjoyed it very much!
I have participated in this trip every year for 15 times, and it’s a very enjoyable trip different from a “Japanese style” of trip.
Designed by Junzo Yoshimura (a Japanese architect of Nara National Museum and Tokyo Imperial Palace), this hotel is a representative facility of Japan Total Club, a members-only resort hotel. It has a diverse attractions such as beach, swimming pool, inside-a-cave hot spring, kids’ room, etc., to please visitors of any age.
Other than the company trips, we have many other events such as Christmas party at a finest hotel, mountain climbing and ski trips, birthday lunches with the president, frequent company parties, and so on. It is a company that values internal communications.
