Group Management Philosophy

“Safety and Comfort” and “Dreams and Excitement”

The Hankyu Hanshin Holdings Group came into being in October 2006 through the management integration of Hankyu Holdings, Inc. and Hanshin Electric Railway Co., Ltd. Centred on the Kansai district of Japan, we operate seven core businesses: Urban Transportation, Real Estate, Entertainment, Information and Communication Technology, Travel, International Transportation, and Hotels.

Along with connecting Osaka, Kobe, and Kyoto—the centre of Kansai's economy—by railway,we offer more fulfilling lifestyles and contribute to community-building in areas served by our lines in a wide range of fields, such as the management of commercial facilities and office buildings, the Hanshin Tigers professional baseball team, the Takarazuka Revue, and travel and hotels.

We will continue to be committed to enriching people's lifestyles for generations to come and fulfilling our mission of delivering "safety and comfort" and "dreams and excitement".
