What is your future business?

We are passionate about accelerating town management by introducing advanced technologies for low-carbon and recycling-oriented society based on a system for realizing a smart city. In response to the declining birthrate and aging population, we are developing measures aimed at the younger generation, such as providing renovated housing and enhancing services that will help solve social issues, in cooperation with many partner companies. We are, what is more, promoting environmental conservation activities throughout the company. We have converted part of the office electricity to green power and are currently considering reusing of tree trimmings, like branches and leaves, in the town for biomass power generation. It is our central goal to implement all possible solutions to realize a sustainable city.



NOUCHI, Kensuke (Tohoku University)

I could see the interviewee’s pride in their business. They are considerate of the residents of Parktown and hold many events for them to make the community closer. They also consider the health of employees. The office has rooms for taking naps which I find so fascinating! For me, the company’s vision of turning the town into a smart city sounds so interesting. The possibility of their business is infinite. It is exciting to imagine the future ideal town, isn’t it?



TOKUMITSU, Seita(Tohoku University)

One thing that surprised me was the CEO’s confidence towards their services and office environment. The CEO had strong confidence in their services, and I was able to feel not only strong leadership but also their motivation to make Izumi Parktown a better place. Also, I felt that the company thinks a lot about their employees through the provision of nutritious food and relaxing spaces in their office. I felt this would be the best place for employees with high motivation.



MITSUMORI, Manaka (Tohoku University)

What impressed me most about the interview was that the CEO is actively considering accepting foreign employees so that they could not only manage diversity in Parktown but also promote synergy within the company. Also, I was surprised to hear that there was a lot of advanced and unique support for employees such as recreational activities and inviting family members to the office. I thought such an environment would make it possible to work very comfortably.



KENHI, Chen (Tohoku University)

I think the atmosphere of Izumi Parktown is a little different from other areas in Japan. It is cleaner and houses in this area are far away from main roads, so you will find it comfortable to live there. The success of this area is attributed to Izumi Parktown Service. They have contributed to the construction of this area for more than 40 years. I can feel their enthusiasm for their work, and it seems that they are ready for the next challenge.



MINATO, Junna (Tohoku University)

Izumi Parktown Service, a member of the Mitsubishi Estate Group, is expected to keep bringing people pleasant surprises with its diversified partner enterprises. You can take on new challenges and grow with the town and residents there.
