Nurturing budding classical musicians
The 19th part in the GINZA×CSR series introduces Sapporo Lion, the company that runs the Ginza Lion beer hall as one of its many establishments. Sapporo Lion built Japan’s beer hall culture and formed its cultural manifestation of “music beer halls.” It also provides a place for budding classical musicians to take to the stage. Today, we spoke with Reika Nishimura from the Business Strategy Department.
