For more than a century, Seibundo has published technical and business works in the fields of science, technology, lifestyle and culture.
More recently, we have expanded our business to organizing special events, seminars, e-commerce and other activities. We are committed to further expanding our content-related business to meet the needs of all customers using varied formats and approaches.
Over the decades, we have published accessible books and magazines that provide the information demanded by the times. The Anglo-Japanese Conversation Manual (Nichibei kaiwa techo), for example, was published less than two months after World War II ended in anticipation of Japanese society’s need for English conversation skills.
We have a wealth of experience in publishing translated works around the world, including in China, Taiwan, South Korea, the United States, France, Germany, Spain, Thailand and Vietnam.
We publish more than 200 books and issues for nine magazines annually across a range of genres and categories including the sciences, astronomy, computing, agriculture, gardening, flowers, art, handicrafts, cooking, hobbies, pets, children’s books/magazines, general education, and entertainment.
With a focus on workshops and discussion sessions, we organize a wide variety of events including exhibitions and package tours. Real-life experiences are more important than ever in our increasingly digitalized world, and we specialize in delivering high-quality, in-person content.
We sell unique merchandise affiliated with books and magazines, as well as products created through collaborations with other companies. Leveraging our planning capabilities and business networks built up through our book-publishing experience, we pursue new product development to communicate information using new formats and approaches.
