RENAISSANCE, "Company to create something to live for," proposes a healthy and comfortable lifestyle to the guests.」

The Renaissance, an art movement that began in Florence, Italy in the 14th century, is recognized as a time of revival for the arts. It was a time of spirited artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Raphael.

RENAISSANCE was chosen as the name for our company and facilities because of a founding spirit that believes in "a movement of revitalization of humanity" — as a response to an overly controlled and material-centered society. The company name embodies our desire to achieve the ideal society by providing the guests with physical health — the wellspring of energy and passion — in the best possible way.

The healthy life expectancy is a major goal for people as Japan's population continues to rapidly age. Our mission is to help everybody, from each age bracket to “create something to live for” by offering a method of “delightful health promotion.”


Business Description

As a "Company to create something to live for", RENAISSANCE has contributed to the health promotion of many people through sports club business experience.

The current social situation in Japan shows a major issue of social unrest, due to rapid changes in demographic dynamics, such as a decline in the working population, a declining birthrate, an increase in social insurance expenses in a super aged society, ahead of the developed countries. Meanwhile, the business environment surrounding us is experiencing great growth opportunities due to the rise in public health awareness and the promotion of national sports policies against the background of the establishment of the Japan Sports Agency.

In order to solve various social issues and to work towards the "extension of healthy lifespan" which is one of the growth strategies of the Japanese government, we are promoting the diversification of businesses with "health" as the key word and healthcare related business, notably by supporting health promotion for companies and local governments and developing rehabilitation specialized day care centers for seniors.

In addition, we have opened 2 sports clubs in Vietnam to play a part in health promotion and promotion of sports in emerging Asian countries as they are experiencing population growth.

We will continue to make proposals concerning health so that each one of you will continue to create something to live for.



RENAISSANCE INCORPORATED was founded in 1979 with the heartfelt desire to achieve an ideal society by providing guests with physical health, the wellspring of people's energy and passion.

We began as a tennis school and now operate more than 100 sports clubs around Japan. As of now, Renaissance is looking to expand its business lineup with a focus on health. To this end, we are promoting the diversification of businesses with "health" as the key word and healthcare related businesses, notably by supporting health promotion for companies and local governments and developing rehabilitation specialized day care centers for seniors.
