Monet's Water Lilies on display outdoors

In the Tokushima area specifically, the group established the Otsuka Museum of Art in 1998 to mark the 75th anniversary of its founding.
The museum features more than 1,000 replicas of Western masterpieces, from ancient murals to modern works, across four kilometers of display space. The replicas have been produced to original size using the special technology of Otsuka Ohmi Ceramics. This allows visitors to view masterpieces from 190 art museums in 25 countries all under one roof.
The museum’s creative exhibits take advantage of the durability and other benefits of ceramic. A set of six altar panels by El Greco are arranged in their original configuration; a display of da Vinci’s Last Supper compares the painting before and after restoration; and Van Gogh’s Sunflowers, which was destroyed by fire in 1945 during the war, has been reproduced for visitors. In addition, the museum displays replicas of Monet's Water Lilies outdoors, in recognition of the painter’s desire that this series be viewed in daylight. This allows visitors to appreciate the works in natural light that changes throughout the day. From June to September, actual water lilies of various hues can also be seen blooming in a pond around the works; this is the best season for enjoying these masterpieces.

Tokushima Vortis community activities

The Tokushima Vortis professional soccer team was founded in 2004 around a core group of members from the Otsuka Pharmaceutical soccer team. Tokushima Vortis was conceived to revitalize the local community, and with support from the Tokushima Prefecture Board of Education, the team published the Tokushima Challenge Program, a booklet on ways to improve physical strength. The booklet is distributed to elementary school students in the prefecture and available online. Team players also take part in physical education classes at elementary schools to motivate youth and interest them in engaging in physical activities.
The Otsuka group provides support for the soccer team. It helps to promote the athletes’ health and nutrition, sponsors events at the team’s home stadium, and carries out other efforts to develop the local region through soccer.

Otsuka Pharmaceutical Factory: Track and field workshop for junior and senior high school students

The Otsuka Pharmaceutical track and field team includes male and female athletes, some of whom have gone on to compete in the Olympics and world-class sports events. In between their training commitments, team members participate in local school or community track and field programs.
The First Tokushima Athletes’ Meeting was held in December 2016 at the Naruto Otsuka Sports Park POCARI SWEAT Stadium. The aim was to strengthen, raise awareness of, and promote junior athletes in Tokushima Prefecture, in cooperation with the Tokushima Athletics Association. Two athletes from the Otsuka Pharmaceutical Factory track and field team gave talks to 50 junior and senior high school students from the prefecture. They spoke on the importance of winter training, technical and mental aspects of training, as well as practical skills and training techniques.
