～ 2001-2003 First term ～ Founding and encounter with cards
At the time of our founding, we worked on various jobs with the goal of “I don’t like the job I was asked to do and accept any job!” One of the successful jobs was to distribute cards. This is the connection between our company and the card.
Founded in Nishigotanda on January 31st.
Hyundai Omote founded Visionary Company Co., Ltd. in Nishigotanda, Shinagawa-ku. Founded by renting a part of a company run by seniors in college. The head office was a telephone with a fax function and a signboard made of cardboard.
At the time of its founding, it started with the main business of producing magazines and pamphlets related to the spiritual world and spirituality. This year, he was commissioned to produce the “Angel Card” series, which had just landed in Japan, and this will have a major impact on his later business.
Started wholesale sales of healing goods
Started a business to wholesale healing goods such as the “Angel Card” series that just landed in Japan. Initially, it was developing sales channels by diving into each house. We will start by outsourcing to 10 stores, mainly in Tokyo, such as natural stone, flower essence, and aromatherapy stores.
Moved to Iidabashi 2-chome, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo for business expansion
(second office move)
Since the office at the time of establishment was a 2DK rental condominium, it will be relocated to an office building of 17 tsubo. Around this time, there were four employees. All were personal acquaintances of the representative.
Over 500 wholesale transaction records
Around this time, the number of trading stores increased dramatically as a result of the boom in “angel cards” and sales activities using direct mail. However, as the number of transactions increases, the problem of inventory storage becomes apparent. I just moved in the previous year, but I am forced to move to a new office.
～ 2004-2005 Second term ～ Business expansion, overseas to look for cards that have not been seen yet
It turns out that the world of cards revolves around Europe, the United States and Australia. It was a time when we repeatedly visited these countries and sought “what will happen to the card market in Japan in the future?”
Moved to 1-chome, Iidabashi, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo for business expansion
(third office move)
Move from the previous office across the road. The area is 28 tsubo. There will be a reception space and inventory storage space, which will form the body of the office. Around this time, the number of employees will increase significantly due to business expansion.
Import of overseas version tarot
Since there were many transactions that requested the handling of tarot cards, we signed a distributor contract with the long-established Italian tarot maker Lo Scarabeo. After that, we expanded our business to manufacturers in various regions such as U.S. Game (USA) and AGM (Switzerland).
Looking for a card I haven’t seen yet …
Travel abroad for research to find new opportunities. Participate in spiritual events in the United States and Germany and get up-to-date information. Take on challenges such as advertising in English in American magazines. Meanwhile, a publishing contract was signed with Canadian card publisher Duguay Production (Headquarters: Montreal).
Reorganized from a limited company to a joint-stock company
It was a limited company from the time it was founded, but it was reorganized into a joint-stock company on the occasion of card publishing. The capital will be increased to 10 million yen and the registration will be changed to Visionary Company Co., Ltd.
～ 2006-2007 Third term ～ Start publishing cards that have not landed in Japan one after another
After repeated visits overseas, I started publishing Japanese versions of overseas cards. Cards from countries unfamiliar to Japan such as Canada and Australia will appear. It is also the stage where the stage has changed from the card distribution industry to the publishing industry.
Translate overseas cards and start selling as Japanese version
The Japanese version of “Hikari no Message Card” (written by Mario Duguay), the first translation card, is on sale. Immediately after its release, it became a hit, and six months later, the second series, “Message Card of Life,” will be published.
Looking for an Australian card …
When the Oracle card landed, most of the cards originated in the United States, so I turned my eyes to Australia. Meanwhile, we conclude a publishing contract with the local largest company, Blue Angel Publishing (Headquarters: Melbourne).
