Greetings

Greetings

Times have changed since Matsuo Basho, famous haiku poet, visited Yamagata over three hundred years ago. However, the many hot springs, hearty delicious cuisine, and the warm-heartedness and simplicity of the people always hold charm for myself.
Natural leather brings out warmth and a deep sense of serenity, and I believe it is this quality which gives the owners of these products happiness and enjoyment.
Our corporation Midori Hokuyo Inc. Ltd., situated in the rich natural environment of the Yamagata area, strives to perpetually reform technology and contribute to the advancement of the quality of peoples lives in our nation.
In addition, in accordance with our corporation's demands, a new plant and central research center was established in November, 1991. On the theme "Applying Science to Natural Materials", our corporation is putting all our efforts to develop specialized technology and new products, manufacture superior goods and through our friendly sales become a corporation which completely satisfies our customers.
I look forward to your continued support and a bright future for Midori Hokuyo.
