Otsuka-people creating new products
for better health worldwide

Creating unique and innovative products
Improving health and well-being
Contributing to the lives of people worldwide

As a total healthcare company, we at Otsuka Pharmaceutical are committed to continuing with the research, development, manufacture, and delivery of products that satisfy customer needs, based on our strengths of "jissho" - actualization - and "sozosei" - creativity.

Otsuka's DNA

By sweat we recognize the way
The process of discovering the core substance of something through hard work and practice
Self-actualization through achievement, completion and the discovery of truth
Resisting the urge to copy and pursuing that which only Otsuka is capable of delivering
