    From microorganisms to elephants and whales, untold numbers of living things coexist on the earth in a state of mutual dependency. Humans are among them, but due to unilateral actions on our part, the relationship between humans and other organisms has grown unstable. The human population has continued to grow without restraint, leading to stresses on food supplies and the environment, altered living conditions for many other species, and countless extinctions.

    Midori Shobo publishes a wide variety of titles that focus on life and the environment, and that spread the word about new ideas and technologies for overcoming the numerous challenges faced by the species of the world?including humans?with regard to such issues as species propagation, nourishment, and disease.

    In 1932 the Japan Telephone and Building Company (Nippon Denwa Tatemono K.K.) launched a PR publication titled Jutaku to denwa (Home and Telephone). A home and lifestyle magazine for general audiences, Hogaraka (Clear and Bright), went on sale in 1955 in bookstores nationwide. In 1961 the publishing side of JTBC’s Division of Advertising and Publications was spun off to become the independent Hogaraka Publishing Co. Hogaraka was renamed Nyu hausu (NewHOUSE) in 1962, and the name of the company itself was changed to NewHOUSE Co., Ltd. the following year. NewHOUSE established itself as a publisher of magazines, "mooks," and books about homes and architecture, as well as children's titles and study aids. It has been a member of the Japan Book Publishers Association since 1990 and is a supporting member of the Japan Publishers Club. In 2006 the company moved into new quarters in a building dubbed "The Wall" in Shinkawa, Chuo-ku, Tokyo. The core of its activities today continues to be the publication of books.

    For more than five decades, Nihon Vogue-sha has dedicated itself to enriching women’s lives by publishing a wide variety of books on handicrafts. In an age when people’s lives are filled with manufactured objects of every kind, the significance and value of “handmade” goes well beyond the simple making of another object; it is an expression of the self and one’s own personal lifestyle, a means of connecting with family and other loved ones, a kind of healing that comes from taking back some precious time for oneself, and an opportunity to meet others who have the same interests?to name just a few of its attractions. Nihon Vogue-sha answers to these demands by publishing books, sponsoring classes, and offering information over the Internet covering materials, how-to instructions, designs, and other useful details encompassing the full range of craft genres.

    Rironsha was born in 1947, shortly after the end of World War II, out of a desire to plant new seeds for the future in the ravaged earth of war-torn Japan. The seeds soon sprouted and blossomed into a garden of children's literature, which has nurtured the minds of many new generations of boys and girls in the years since.

    As the 20th century wound down, the cold war between East and West came to an end, but now in the 21st century, Japan and the world have entered an era of great change. The catastrophic earthquake and tsunami of March 11, 2011, has had the effect of calling into question our way of life, our values, and even our entire understanding of human civilization.

    In a direct reflection of these developments, our children's world is undergoing great changes as well. Living in an age of upheaval, children more than ever need that one special book through which they can experience the joy of life. It is from books that convey the wisdom and truths that people live by in fun and stimulating ways that they are most likely to gain this joy.

    The new Rironsha will carry on the fine traditions of the old in continuing to bring out such books, always looking to the future and to the world.
