■ Groundbreaking Ceremony

PASONA Group’s job is to “harness the potential of the individual.”
PASONA Group is aiming to support the creation of a comfortable lifestyle for people everywhere.

“Thank You, Life.”
Pasona Group’s job is to “harness the potential of the individual.”
The company aims to realise a society where everyone can play an active role in a healthy and lively manner.

Through the pavilion, Pasona Group aspires to create a world in which all people, from children to the elderly, are honoured and filled with gratitude for life.

Our society is a part of the natural world, and humanity’s continued existence is thanks to nature.

However, at some point, we seem to have started to take this for granted and forgotten our sense of gratitude.

We ought instead to embrace the wish to create and leave to the next generation a world where we can exchange thanks for the life made possible by the bountiful blessings of nature.

Pasona Group’s hope is to see many people from all over the world visit its pavilion and become creators of the future, coming together to create the “Natureverse” (Nature × Universe) in which gratitude resonates.

That is the wish of Pasona Group.
