Otsuka Pharmaceutical to Sponsor Thematic Project "Resonance of Lives" at the Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai, Japan

Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. (Otsuka) is a Silver Partner sponsor of the "Co-being Pavilion" at the Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai, Japan. The Co-being Pavilion forms part of the "Signature Pavilion" group and is dedicated to the theme of "Resonance of Lives." Produced by Keio University professor Hiroaki Miyata, the pavilion aligns with the overall theme of the Expo, "Designing Future Society for Our Lives."

As a total healthcare company, Otsuka is committed to being an indispensable contributor to the health of people around the world. Therefore, we are advocates of Hiroaki Miyata's concept for the Co-being Pavilion, which fosters a "resonance of lives," creating a new world in which each person is connected, diverse lives are respected, and no one is left behind. At Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai, Japan, we intend to present to a global audience a vision for "shaping the health of the future" and to actively progress toward its realization.

  • About the Signature Pavilion

It is named "Signature Pavilion" because the thematic projects are symbolic and representative projects of Expo 2025, and because the pavilions, which are created by eight experts, are also a "signature piece" in which the themes are deeply discussed from the producers' respective philosophies. Eight project producers will interpret and develop Expo 2025's theme, "Designing Future Society for Our Lives," from their own unique perspectives, and build pavilions that will connect people living in the future.

We are now at a turning point in reconstructing civilisation, not only from an economic point of view, but also in the areas of the environment, human rights, education, and health. In a world where everyone is connected to one another, it is important to respect diverse forms of life and aim to achieve a future where each and every individual can prosper. The thematic project "Resonance of Lives" offers the opportunity to experience human co-being -- resonating with life and the future -- through co-creating a new world.
