Welcome to the 5G era.

As 5G opens the door to change that may rival the industrial revolution, Rakuten is preparing for a wave of innovation. We are embarking on new initiatives and redefining preconceptions.

When preconceptions change, the way we live and the very fabric of society can change. The application of AI and other advanced technologies across fields including e-commerce, fintech, sports, entertainment, mobile and medical services are already transforming visions of the future. The Rakuten Group is paving the way for that transformation.

We are optimistic about the future. We continue to challenge expectations.
