Kaisha Shikiho New Year 2023


Covers the characteristics, performance, and financial details of all listed companies in Japan—the must-have “equity investment bible,” updated quarterly.

Kaisha Shikiho is a corporate data book offering compact coverage of all listed companies in Japan, including characteristics, performance, financial details, major shareholders, executives, and stock price trends. Since launching in Showa 11 (1936), it has been widely appreciated as the “equity investment bible”—the archetypal corporate dictionary, used for researching business partners—for marketing, and for information on job placements. Due to its established reputation for the neutrality, objectivity, and thoroughness of its reporters’ writing and forecasts, it is used not only in Japan, but worldwide.
