Candies International Inc.
Tutti Project which connects people by
Candies International Inc offers places for communication which connect people deeper and better than a Social Networking Service.
We contribute to creating a new world.
What is the Tutti Project?
Tutti is a musical term which means that all the musical instruments are played together in an orchestra. For example, it is represented by the two passages in the opening of Beethoven Symphony No.3 Eroica.
With the Tutti Project, we aim for all the participants to be able to create beautiful harmony even though each of them is playing different instruments. When people become connected through a deep communication like creating harmony, something new will be born the same as the way in which Beethoven opened up the way through music.
We offer unique opportunities where people can meet others. Of course, we are also handling various businesses in English.
“Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age 18” by Albert Einstein.
Don’t you have some preconceptions through which you see and feel every day? Don’t you often think in your daily life “Really? The fact was that?”
I can say that people are living in a life which is full of fixed ideas.
Einstein’s words are a warning to the people whose ideas become fixed in their youth, so that they are stuck in the stereotypes. If Einstein was stuck in the stereotypes, he wouldn’t be able to find the special relativity theory, would he?
Also, to change a point of view and take Nightingale’s exploit for example, she brought an innovation to the nursing world in which people thoroughly focused on the patient’s standpoint. Nightingale must’ve not been stuck in the stereotypes as well.
Candies International is developing various businesses which will bring innovations to the modern society.
What would happen if people have preconceptions and meet others for the first time? Deep communication won’t be created, will it? With the Tutti Project, we get rid of such stereotypes and offer opportunities to meet new people.
There must be fantastic encounters and you will find a new self.
“Courage to take a step forward” Quoted from my book titled『Aus Liebe』
A little action could bring a big achievement.
Innovation isn’t as easy as it sounds. You must have sharp ideas, and also the “decisiveness” to take an action.
Also, our company was founded on the 1st of September which was the same date as the birthday of Maestro Seiji Ozawa. When Maestro Ozawa was young, he got on a cargo ship alone and headed for Europe with his motorbike, and he became the first Japanese to win first prize at the International Competition of Orchestra Conductors in Besancon, France. He also had a great “decisiveness” He had overthrown the bias such as “Orientals wouldn’t understand Western classical music” and brought innovation to the field. He worked with domestic and major foreign orchestras such as the Boston Symphony, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Berlin Philharmonic, and worked as a music director for the Vienna State Opera.
We learn such vitality to take an action from great predecessors and develop our business in the fields which haven’t been established yet in the world. This is the innovation that we think about and also our company’s mission.
Two policies that support Candies international’s mission are decisiveness and communication.
A lot of people know a legendary Japanese singing group called ‘Candies’ which was composed of three girls and which was very popular mainly in 70s.
However, the Candies announced that the group would be breaking up at a concert held on 17th of July 1977 in Tokyo. Even though they were at the peak of their popularity, they carried out their own will. Even their entertainment production company’s president didn’t know about this.
We are strongly attracted to their decisiveness. They made their own decision about breaking up even though they had a risk of losing everything that they had established up till then.
Even now, their songs are still attractive and loved by many people. Toshishita no Otokonoko, Haru Ichiban and Hohoemi Gaeshi etc.
They didn’t act as if they were the dolls that the production company created and managed. They took an action which other conventional groups would not do.
The three girls broke the stereotypes and carried out their own will.
They facilitated communication with the production company which they belonged to at that time, backing band, and fans before everything else. This is how the Candies were created.
I’ve heard that even after they broke up, the three girls, Ran, Sue and Miki, were getting along well. They were connected with strong ties, so even when Sue passed away at a hospital on 21st April 2011, they were all together. The three girls were linked to each other through a solid communication.
We learned such decisiveness and communication from Maestro Ozawa and the Candies and we are developing our business in the fields which haven’t been established in the world yet. This is the innovation which we think of and also our vision.
We are pleased to see that a lot of people sympathize with the various businesses that Candies International presents. We are sure that we can create such innovation together.
“ Break On Through ” The Doors
As for our event information, please contact us by email or phone.
We invite you to a fantasy land with no visual sense.
This event is not only to enjoy having light meals, sweets, tea and coffee with your sense of visions shut off in the darkness, but also each of you will feel something new and special. Hierarchical relationships disappear in the world where there is no vision. Therefore, everyone can spend time in equal relationships.
We offer places for connecting people with our Tutti Project. The menu at each event will be different. Sometimes we have a special event such as to connect people as well as for art / music.
Tutti Cross-industrial Exchange Meetings are totally different to the conventional parties in which people just meet with others.
We offer new places for people to meet with others and allow them to have organic conversations.
Tutti Workshop / Facilitation Business
In this Tutti Workshop / Facilitation Business, we hold workshops for companies and groups for the purpose of improving the team building skill and communication skill. Our company representative director Hiroyuki Ishii has actually held workshops more than 100 times not only in Japan but also in America.
We’ve held a lot of lectures focusing on welfare so far. We carry out the lectures in which participants and ourselves can have connections. Sometimes the lecture includes the workshop in which all the participants can be engaged in some activities. We will give a wide range of information regarding visually impaired people, which you can’t find on any websites. Also, we talk about visually impaired people’s employment which usually presents a lot of problems.
