Origin of our Company name
Lilac likes a cool place and we can see mainly in Hokkaido, Japan. It was chosen as a “Tree of Sapporo city” in 1960 and it is familiar to many citizens now.
Lilac’s petals are usually 4 pieces, but rarely 5 pieces. If you find the rare flower and swallow it silently, it’s said that you can spend eternally with a person who loves.
We’d like to create the pharmaceutical products, which become the “5th Lilac petal” for patients, and decided to include our feelings in this Company’s name.
