We are authentic and stay true to ourselves, without artifice or urge to imitate. We commit ourselves to the development of products and services that only Otsuka could conceive and make a reality.

What We Believe In

Perseverance

We persist to do what’s right and what matters.

Unconventional thinking

We live to create and discover a better way.
