    Since its launch in 1945, Kobunsha has established itself as a leading publisher in Japan. Among our various publications, Kappa Books, an educational library of nonfiction books first published in 1954, has won broad support from the public. Kappa Novels, a library that has produced a number of groundbreaking bestsellers, such as Points and Lines by Seicho Matsumoto and Japan Sinks by Sakyo Komatsu, is recognized as one of Japan’s outstanding imprints. With an aim towards promoting mystery novels, we established the Kobun Foundation in 1994, which has produced many talented writers as well as awarding a Grand Prize for Best Mystery Novels annually.

    As for magazines, we have brought out Josei Jishin (Women’s Self), the earliest weekly magazine to focus on the improving status of women in Japan. We also launched JJ, a monthly Japan-centered fashion magazine for women that does not imitate Western culture. Kobunsha has also been a pioneer in new markets, producing magazines such as CLASSY., VERY, STORY, and HERS, which emphasize the viewpoints of readers.

    In February 2009 we launched our Subsidiary Rights Division (renamed the Contents Business Division in 2013) to further expand our copyright business in regions of Asia such as China and South Korea, as well as Western countries. We have an agreement with Chinese publishers to export magazines such as CLASSY., STORY, and Gainer. We are also working in the content business, including film adaptations.

    Kosei Publishing Co. was founded in 1966 to facilitate the broader dissemination of Buddhist thought. In the years since, it has been making the appeal of Buddhism known to a large readership through books that examine Buddhist thought from many different perspectives in easy-to-understand critiques and commentaries.

    The 15-volume Shin Ajia Bukkyo-shi (A New History of Buddhism in Asia) represents a new standard for treating the history of Buddhism. Alongside such major undertakings, the company publishes a wide range of other books on Buddhist writings, religion, education, social welfare, health and other subjects.

    The company has also published over 300 books for children. Targeting readers from age zero through senior high school, these titles include picture books, storybooks and literature, nonfiction, and philosophical essays. The picture book Nani o tabete kita no? (What Did You Eat?) has continued to sell briskly as a reader favorite for over three decades since it was first published. A series of picture books by Yoko Imoto, as well as the Piyo-piyo (Cheep Cheep) series by Noriko Kudoh, have also garnered large numbers of loyal fans.

    Some Kosei children’s titles have been reprinted in school textbooks or adopted for classroom use. Kosei titles are also frequently included on reading lists and recommended book lists compiled by various schools and organizations.

    Founded in 1942 under the motto “To publish is to create,” Kouseikan made its early mark in the relatively undeveloped fields of domestic science/home economics and Chinese language/linguistics. The company continues to publish numerous titles in these fields today, but it has also expanded into psychology and teacher-training textbooks, books on a broad range of general-interest topics that extend from its domestic science/home economics background, and books relating to social welfare issues. Dedicated to the goal of “contributing to the enhancement of livelihoods and lifestyles,” Kouseikan strives to produce best-in-class books in every category of its publication program.
