Suntory Hall, Tokyo’s first ever dedicated concert hall, opened its doors in autumn 1986 with the lofty goal of pursuing ‘the world’s most beautiful sound’. The hall was also the realisation of a dream long held by Keizo Saji, president of Suntory Ltd. at that time. Across many generations, the Suntory Group has been deeply involved in cultural and social contribution activities based on the belief of its founder, Shinjiro Torii, that businesses should be implemented under the spirit of ‘Giving back to society’. He believed that profits gained from business should be used in three ways: to improve services for customers, to expand business, and to give back to society. Today, Suntory Hall reflects this spirit in all its activities.
