On July 28, 2021, Ivresse Co., Ltd. was listed on the TOKYO PRO Market of the Tokyo Stock Exchange. I’d like to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude for your support.
I started Ivresse as a way to turn my love of hotels, travel, and design into my job.
It’s been a long, hard journey, but we’ve overcome numerous hurdles, and as the founder I’m very happy that we’ve achieved this kind of success.
Taking the company public means more rules to follow, and perhaps our team of free-spirited creators has lost much of its creativity as a result. But when I think about the future of our company, I believe it was the right choice to make.
Our company has always been a place where women can thrive even without changing the way we work.Every woman who has worked here, in an environment created exclusively by women, has given her all to do the best job she could.Over the past few years, many men have also joined our company, and thanks to them we’ve made breakthroughs we never could with women alone, a testament to their dependability.
And in 2018, driven by our determination to give shape to our long-desired Ivresse style,we ventured into the hotel operations business with a new subsidiary, Ivresse Hospitality.
It was thanks to the support of our business partners and affiliates; the friends, family, and mentors who have always looked out for us; and the Ivresse staff who gave their all day in and day out, that we received our stock code: 7125.
2020 also brought us the Tokyo Olympics, albeit without spectators, and with them a whole host of moving experiences.Between the unexpected pandemic, the Atami mudslide, and many other disasters, there hasn’t been much to cheer about in the tourism, hotel, and restaurant industry. But we hoped to bring at least one piece of good news to the industry, and this hope coincided with the Olympics.
"Giving shape to hospitality” is our way of contributing to local communities and hotels.
We look forward to taking the next steps with you toward a new future.
Keiko Yamakawa, President and CEO
