Nagasaki’s population is rapidly declining. This is just one of several local challenges facing the city and the wider region. By building a first-of-a-kind IR especially for Nagasaki, Oshidori would like to play its role in raising the living standards in the city and the broader Kyushu area to a new level. What will our IR create? Jobs that are often available only in big cities. More robust and stable communities, in which children can access diverse educational opportunities. An inclusive environment that provides for all of life’s joys big and small, and greater convenience. Exciting new forms of entertainment. Through the creation of a world-class IR, we can address the region’s key challenges. Oshidori’s mission is to make your ideals a reality, and to build the future city of your dreams.
With its multitude of hotels, arenas, convention centers, exclusive restaurants and more, an IR has a vast variety of job opportunities spanning at least six industries. This expands the employment horizons and career potential for the people of Nagasaki. But that’s not all that an IR brings. Having visitors from all over the world travel to a Nagasaki IR will give the city and the wider Kyushu region a chance to showcase the unique local culture and customs. The resort will stimulate the kind of job growth and diverse work styles that are usually only available in the world’s top cities.
Oshidori wants to play an active role in raising local living standards, and that means supporting the next generation of Nagasaki. Through new daycare centers and other means, an Oshidori IR will promote work-life balance and diverse work styles. As part of our commitment, we have established the Kyushu Oshidori Children’s Foundation, which will help improve the quality of local education and expand on the potential of local children of all ages. The Foundation will provide scholarships, help with foreign-language learning, offer study-abroad opportunities, work internships, entertainment and hospitality-related programs, and also donate to student sports.
Aside from making everyday life more convenient thanks to its new shops, restaurants, and other facilities, IR can fulfil a vital role in times of emergency by acting as a disaster-management center. Such hubs need to be situated in places that people are already familiar with, where locals already gather for work, shopping, food, and other regular activities. We aim to create a safe and secure environment by making full use of the latest in global knowledge and know-how to deal with areas of local concern, be it around addiction, security or other.
We will help Nagasaki sparkle on the world stage as the IR attracts the best entertainment with the latest in technology. The integrated resort will bring to the city fashion brands, restaurants and many other delights that have yet to reach Japanese shores. It will also be a place that’s inclusive and universally designed, making it fun and accessible and to all people, regardless of age, disability or where they are from. We hope you will enjoy interacting with all manner of people from around the world.

Oshidori International Development GK is a Japanese corporation that was established to develop an integrated resort in Sasebo City, Nagasaki Prefecture. Its parent company is the Hong Kong-based general financial services company, Oshidori International Holdings Limited. (listed in Honk Kong under the stock code HKEX: 0622).
Oshidori’s mission has two key goals. To help develop the tourism industry in Nagasaki and the broader Kyushu region through the creation of a world-class resort. And, at the same time, to ensure a bright future for the children of Kyushu region by creating new business opportunities and careers.
As a responsible member of the community, Oshidori strives to work in tandem with local governments, businesses, schools, and other organizations to raise the region to a new level and see it thrive. As part of its mission to turn future ideals into reality, in 2019, the company established the Kyushu Oshidori Children’s Foundation. The Foundation holds an 18.84% stake in Oshidori International and with this resource, among other means, it aims to improve the lives of young people in the region. In addition, The Foundation has donated about 20 million yen to support Nagasaki’s disaster recovery efforts.
In 2019, Oshidori established the Kyushu Oshidori Children’s Foundation in support of children and youth of all ages, from pre-school to graduate school in the Kyushu region. The Foundation owns approximately 20% of the share capital of Oshidori International Holdings Limited. The Foundation is dedicated to enhancing the lives of children and youth in Kyushu, unleashing their potential to maximize their opportunities at school and work, and inspiring them to live their life to the fullest. The goal of the Foundation is to bring improvements from the primary level that can drive meaningful changes to rejuvenate Nagasaki.
The Foundation aims to foster future global citizens by:
- Providing financial aid to children and youth from disadvantaged and vulnerable families, and single-parent households.
- Working with prefectural boards of education in improving school facilities and teaching qualities to help students (especially those from low-income and rural communities) to better prepare for college and career placement.
- Facilitating local high-school and college students to study abroad.
During the floods in July 2020, the Foundation donated 20,000,000 yen to Akai Hane – Nagasaki Community Chest Association & Social Welfare Corporation – to support flood relief efforts in Nagasaki Prefecture.
