SCOPE, GBP, GIS and Faculty of Sustainability Studies students visited Rakuten’s head office (called “Rakuten Crimson House”) which is located near Futako-Tamagawa station, Tokyo, on July 2nd, 2019.

Rakuten* is a fast-growing global company started in Japan about 20 years ago. Rakuten staff members gave HOSEI students an office tour, and then they gave students an overview of Rakuten which has many business models, for example, Rakuten Ichiba(E-Commerce), Rakuten Card and so on.

In addition to that, Hosei alumni who are now working for Rakuten talked about their work and experiences in the company. HOSEI students learned what it is like to work at Rakuten.

HOSEI deeply appreciates Rakuten staff members’ kindness for giving students this valuable experience.
