A deep, precious and delicious life
Enjoy the era of extract slowly

Life becomes deeper, more precious, and more flavorful as you approach your later years.
I believe that we can condense the essence of our lives, enjoy the joy that comes only as we grow older, and enjoy the harvest period of our lives as a culmination.
I've gotten older this year, turning 78 last month. If you compare your life to mountain climbing, you have reached the top of the mountain and are now on your way down.
Things that I couldn't see in the ``age of uphills'' when I was only looking at the top and climbing without looking aside, now that I am in the ``age of downhills'' where I have more peace of mind, my horizons have opened up and I can take life step by step. You can enjoy the scenery. And times when you are going downhill are the perfect time to explore your life, and the fun is endless.
Talking with my grandchildren, cooking, eating, exercising, walking, playing the piano, sailing, and working. This is the source of my well-being. How to spend time with whom and what to eat with. By listening carefully to what your body tells you and managing your health, your life will be truly enriched.
I started playing the piano when I was 60 years old, and although I am naturally good at listening and find it easier, I have found that playing the piano by myself sharpens my senses. 
A yacht where you can experience nature with your whole body and feel calm and enriched. Sailing on the 12-year-old large wooden sailing ship "Sinara" with a crew of 100 strong and intelligent people.
The ``Qualia RIVIERA (Swan 58)'' ride is completely different from that, light and exciting.
I'm a 70-year-old sailing beginner, but when someone whispers in my ear, "I can read the wind!", I feel great while sailing.
The sea is connected to the world and is full of dreams and romance.

There is only one ocean in the world
Human feelings are one thing

I want to protect the beautiful and rich ocean. We also want to further revitalize our beloved Sagami Bay and convey its charm. The ``LOVE OCEAN Project'', which was started with this single intention, is now expanding even further.
In collaboration with the upcoming G9 (New Delhi Summit) to be held in September, we co-hosted the "G20 Mega Beach Cleanup" with the Indian Embassy and the Ministry of the Environment as a related event.
In addition to beach cleans, we offer a variety of other content. We always learn a lot by connecting with people.
There is only one sea. Feelings are one thing.

Each step is different
But same Riviera family

We have received some exciting news from Riviera Country Club (RCC) in Los Angeles, USA. Officially selected to host the 2031 US Open. The US Open will return to the RCC for the first time in 83 years.
The U.S. Women's Open will be held in 100, the 2026 anniversary of RCC's opening, and the Los Angeles Olympics men's and women's golf competition will be held in 2028. At RCC, we continue to take on the challenges of a new era.
RCC, Riviera Songhe Tower Shanghai, Riviera Zushi Marina, Riviera Seabornia Marina, and Shinara were all entrusted to me by their former owners. Currently, they are owned and operated by their respective legal entities. Although their histories and traditions are different, each Riviera can still be called a Riviera family because they are united by a universal ism.
I look forward to seeing what kind of chemical reaction this combination of Rivierism and innovation will create. Together with the families who are walking in their own ways.
