Our mission is to strive towards better health for people worldwide through leading innovation in medicine, with patients at the center of all that we do. From our humble beginnings over 235 years ago, to our efforts of today that span the world, our dedication to this mission remains unchanged. This is the center of the global Takeda group, where colleagues from around the world gather to work with passion, commitment and creativity towards our shared goal.From the bustling and vibrant Edo period and continuing through to the present day, Nihonbashi has long been instrumental in shaping Japan’s economy and culture. This area is also very important to Takeda, as Nihonbashi-Honcho, home now to our Global Headquarters, has been the base for our operations in Tokyo since the Meiji period. From our founding in 1781, we have been driven by the core values of Takeda-ism (Integrity, Fairness, Honesty and Perseverance). We will continue to embody the Takeda spirit, working in harmony with the local community and striving to become a best-in-class global pharmaceutical company.
