Japan Future Entertainment


HoriPro was established in 1960 as a management company for singers and musicians. Since then, under the philosophy of "Promoting culture to inspire people," we have expanded into many business fields, discovering and cultivating a diversed range of talent.

In February 1989, HoriPro became the first artist management company in Japan to offer public stock. This was followed by the company's listing in the 2nd section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange in March 1997, and then in the 1st section of TSE. Responding sensitively to the ever-changing needs of our society and people, HoriPro has continued to professionalize our business. 

As a comprehensive entertainment corporation, we strive to facilitate synergy and value-added enterprises between our business units and to contribute to both Japanese and global society of the 21st century by bringing dreams and inspiration to our lives.
