Zenken was established more than 40 years ago but has kept a start-up way of thinking, constantly taking on new challenges around its two main markets, IT and language education. We develop new businesses by welcoming changes and new trends, learning from our failures and always going forward.

Our vision

Create a future not yet imagined.

We strive to “create a future not yet imagined”.
This means not only scaling our existing services, but always anticipating the needs, creating new value by connecting people.
To achieve that goal, we keep taking on new challenges.

The number of foreigners entering Japan is increasing at an accelerating rate and internationalization is progressing.
We call this “global inbound” and see it as a big business opportunity.
Our expertise in education business, human resource, BtoC and BtoB promotion and web marketing drives our growth in this evolving environment.
By leveraging these strengths, we are realizing a value proposition that only Zenken can provide, by revitalizing the Japanese economy and developing human bridges to connect Japan and overseas.
