Shin-Etsu Group Original Calendar 2011


Colors of the Seasons: The Natural Beauty of Japan

Japan is a long country stretching from north to south and featured by a variety of terrains. Abundant in natural beauty, the stunning scenery varying from season to season can be seen. Colorful flowers bloom in the soft rays of the sun in spring, and lush verdure offers a cool respite from the heat of summer. Leaves bursting into glorious colors signal the advent of autumn, and sparkling snow covering the ground heralds the arrival of winter. Shin-Etsu Group was established in Niigata and Nagano, and photographs of forest, rivers, and lakes in these prefectures grace our 2011 calendar. “Safety and environmental protection-first” is a basic principle for our corporate activities, and Shin-Etsu Group is a leader in the effort to help protect nature and preserve the environment for future generations. The beautiful colors of the seasonal tapestry that nature weaves are a symbol of hope for a better tomorrow.
