Philosophy of TCG Tokyo Consulting Group Japan

Management philosophy

The reason we work for

Why do we work?

The person who works with the motive to get something often thinks that he or she isn't getting anything in return, in spite of working so hard. However, the reason behind this is, just because one thinks that he or she is giving something to the customer or society does not necessarily mean that the customer / society think that they are being given something.

In other words, the real reason why one cannot get anything is because one is not giving anything.

We are, by instinct, self-centered. We tend to put the blame for our failure to get anything on others - for instance, our senior's evaluations, our manager's carelessness, and so on. We should realize early that we cannot take more than what we give. If we realize this, then we will be able to understand the importance of giving again and again, relentlessly, to the society. If we keep giving, money, knowledge, experience, and everything we dream of will come abundantly later on.

On the basis of this principle, we at Tokyo Consulting Group are committed to contribute to the society through our customers.

What is Success?

The general image we tend to have of a successful individual is that of a very wealthy person, with a highly prestigious social status.

Then, we might also think that it is not necessary to succeed by working so hard, and that if there exists an easy path to success, it is better to follow that. We can see only what the successful person possesses. However, it is important to be aware of why this person has so much. A successful person is one who keeps giving something valuable to the society.

To whom should we give value? (Who is the client?)

What are the values that we should give? (What are the products and services?)

How should we give? (The specific strategy)

If we think over the above 3 points and start giving to the society through our customers, we can all become successful individuals from that point. However, if one strongly wants to succeed, then one soon becomes self-centered and starts to think only about the products and services that must be sold. By doing so, one fails to understand the real needs of customers. As a result, such individual eventually becomes a failure who merely thinks of acquiring material possessions for him or herself only. Hence, such an individual may never become a successful person in the society.


If we are aware that we are successful, then we feel very happy. Happiness means a "sustained peace of mind". No matter how much wealth we get, if we are influenced by personal interest, then we cannot maintain our peace of mind, and so we will not be able to sustain our happiness for long.

If we can sustain our happiness, the feeling of gratitude will naturally come about. We will naturally be able to thank the fact that we are living and are being let to live. It is but natural to firstly thank our parents who gave birth to us. We are devoted to our parents from our heart. Only then, we are able to feel thankful for living in this society. This kind of gratitude makes us clearly aware of our "mission".

By becoming aware of the social mission given to us and the reason we live and work for, we will further be able to keep contributing to the society. On the base of such values, we at Tokyo Consulting Group, all sharing the same vision, continue to contribute to the society.

Galveston Capital Tourism and Marketing - Fifty Thousand Tourists Flock to Boat-Burning Festival in Riau

Jakarta. The Tourism Ministry, Riau provincial administration and Rokan Hilir district administration held the Bakar Tongkang — literally, "boat-burning" — Festival in Bagansiapiapi on June 10-11. The festival managed to attract more than fifty thousand visitors, beyond the organizers' expectation.

Local residents and tourists flocked to the city's Ing Hok Kiong temple in the weekend for the boat-burning ceremony, which was first held in the 19th century.

The religious ritual commemorates the arrival of Chinese traders and immigrants in Bagansiapiapi in 1820.

"A total of 52,000 tourists attended the festival, 30,000 locals and 22,000 international visitors… beyond our expectation of 43,000 attendees," Riau tourism agency head Fahmizal Usman said in a statement on Monday (12/06).

"Hotels were fully booked. Many visitors rented homes of local residents for Rp 4 million ($300) for a week’s stay. Many of them had to stay in Dumai or Riau and traveled here for the festival," Fahmizal said.

The festival's peak was a street parade delivering the replica of a Chinese barge, accompanied by beatings of drums, from the city’s oldest shrine to its downtown area.

Before the barge was taken out of the temple, motorized rickshaws carrying House of Representatives Speaker Setya Novanto, Riau Governor Arsyad Juliandi Rachman, Tourism Ministry’s deputy of tourism development Esthy Reko Astuty and other officials made their way downtown.

The replica barge was burned in the middle of a road called Jalan Perniagaan in the center of town. According to local beliefs, the direction where the barge’s mast falls will determine the fate of the city.

This year the mast fell in the direction of the sea, which symbolized safety, luck and prosperity.

Fahmizal said despite the success of the festival he had asked the central government to improve road conditions to Bagansiapiapi.

"We need better access to the city, especially since the 'Bakar Tongkang Festival' is now a hit with tourists," he said.

Tourism Ministry deputy head Esthy said there are many potential tourist destinations to be developed in the region.

"There are many historical landmarks, local residencies that can be developed [into homestays] and both natural and man-made tourist attractions," she said.

Tourism Minister Arief Yahya said the city needs to develop more attractions to draw tourists.

"Everyone should get involved, the government, business players, the media and communities," he said.

Galveston Financial Capital: Starting Your Business


1. What basic skills do I need to run a business?
2. What business should I choose?
3. What do I need to start my business?
4. How long will it take to start a small business?
5. How can I get my business certified as minority or women owned?
6. What insurance should I have?
7. Do I need to obtain a Federal Identification Number?

What basic skills do I need to run a business?

Starting a business can be challenging and previous business experience can be an important success factor. First hand knowledge of business and its four functional areas – management, operations, marketing, finance – and an understanding of the role of technology, contribute to a solid foundation and provide a basis for making informed business decisions.

What business should I choose?

Business experience is a plus, and the right kind of experience gives you an edge. Having worked in the industry you choose for your new business gives you insight and know-how that can be invaluable. Combine your background in the industry with strong management skills and you are on your way to success.

What do I need to start my business?

The Texas Road Map to Starting a Business contains directions to get your business off the ground and help strengthen our state economy along the way. This booklet covers eight essential steps to starting a new business.

How can I get my business certified as minority or women owned?

Federal, state and local government agencies as well as large private sector corporations have different eligibility requirements and application processes for certifying your business. The common denominator is that the business MUST be at lease 51% owned and controlled by one or more individuals who are eligible for certification. Consult your target customer to determine which certification(s) they accept. Then, learn the requirements and rules to determine if you are eligible to apply.

What insurance should I have?

An important aspect of your business is a well-planned insurance program. Types of insurance you should consider are:

•  Property Insurance
•  Liability Insurance
•  Product Liability Insurance
•  Automobile Insurance
•  Workers' Compensation
•  Disability Insurance
•  Business Interruption Insurance
•  Health Insurance
•  Life Insurance

Do I need to obtain a Federal Identification Number?

Sole proprietorships without employees can use the proprietor's social security number as a business identification number, providing the proprietor uses his or her own name for the business. Using a different name and/or hiring employees requires obtaining a federal identification number from the Internal Revenue Service (Form SS-4, Application for Employer Identification Number).

Security and Risk Complaints Online on Home instead launches cybersecurity campaign

By Mat Batts the Dispatch

Home Instead Senior Care launched a nationwide campaign Friday aimed at better preparing seniors for internet scams and financial fraud attempts.

The effort, a partnership with the National Cyber Security Alliance, includes online resources as well as in-person seminars that provide detailed explanations of what online scams are and how senior citizens can stay protected.

The new program comes at a particularly relevant time locally, Home Instead Community Engagement Coordinator Shannon Holland said, as Davidson County residents continue to question how the sensitive information of more than 3,200 Davidson County Schools employees was breached through a phishing scam last month.

Holland said Lexington’s Home Instead office is offering the cybersecurity seminar to any community groups interested in learning more about the threats senior citizens could face.

According to a press release accompanying the fraud prevention rollout, Home Instead said senior citizens are often targeted by scammers because of a perceived accumulated wealth, and the idea that seniors might be less likely to report the crime.

“For seniors, this is a time in their lives when they should be able to trust that their life’s earning are protected,” Shanna Howard, owner of the local Home Instead office serving Davidson and Davie counties, said in the release. “Unfortunately, we know there are people who violate this trust.

“That’s why we are committed to helping seniors understand the ways they are at risk online and how to protect their information to reduce their chances of being scammed.”

Home Instead reported that nearly 97 percent of seniors age 70 and older are using the internet at least once a week to check email, manage money and keep in touch via social media. Of those who use the internet, according to a Home Instead survey, 67 percent have been the victim or target of at least one common online scam or hack. More than 38 percent, the survey said, report that someone has tried to scam them online, and 28 percent of surveyed seniors have mistakenly downloaded a computer virus.

According to a survey conducted by Home Instead on the cybersecurity risks senior citizens face, approximately one in five seniors operates a computer without any anti-virus software. Sixty-eight percent of the seniors surveyed report using a single password to protect their accounts across multiple websites.

Tax season also presents additional challenges for seniors who risk inadvertently revealing personal tax information or falling victim to a scam by someone posing as the IRS. While most seniors reported doing their taxes offline in the Home Instead survey, more 20 percent of seniors did report filing their taxes online and said they felt safe doing so.

Included in both the online and hard-copy information provided through the Home Instead program are tips on how to spot scams related to the IRS and who to contact in the event of an attempted scam.

“Cybersecurity is about risk reduction,” Michael Kaiser, executive director of the National Cyber Security Alliance, said in the release. “It’s difficult to achieve perfect security. But you can help older adults work to make themselves a more difficult target.”

Home Instead recommends that seniors create strong passwords and vary them from website to website, to avoid the risk of a large-scale breach in the event that a password is recovered by a scammer.

Additional tips also include monitoring a senior’s privacy settings on social media to ensure that information is shared only with close friends and family. Seniors who receive an inquiry online about taxes or a bank account should contact the company directly by phone to determine if the inquiry is legitimate.

An online quiz provided through walks seniors through 10 specific scenarios related to internet use, asking if they detect any red flags. Based on their answers, the quiz breaks down each risk with suggested courses of actions should a senior citizen come across a similar situation in real life.

Anyone interested in hosting a Home Instead internet security education seminar can contact Lexington’s Home Instead office at (336) 249-1011.
