Since 2004, we have sponsored the International Junior Go Championship to promote international exchanges through the game of go and to support the healthy upbringing of children. These events bring together junior go players aged 3 to 18 who have been invited from China (Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Dalian) and Taipei, or who have won preliminary tournaments in Kyushu or Yamaguchi prefecture. The players fiercely compete against each other on the go board, which promotes interaction between them.

Kitakyushu International Music Festival
STOTO, which has its headquarters in Kitakyushu, has been a special supporter of this festival since it was first held in 1988 as we endorse the goal of the city of Kitakyushu in Fukushima Prefecture, which is to "develop a city redolent with culture." Every year, the festival brings in major artists from Japan and other countries and provides large numbers of visitors with an opportunity for musical appreciation. We have also continually provided an educational program that gives children from pre-school age through to junior high school age the opportunity to feel the joy of music by experiencing a full-scale concert.
