Shiseido has been the official sponsor of Japan National Gymnastics Team since 2014. On August 31, 2016, the athletes and coaches of the Team paid a courtesy visit to the Company’s Shiodome Headquarters, Tokyo .
The women’s team, whom Shiseido supported in their makeup, gave an inspiring comment: “As you know, gymnastics is scored by judges, and I assume the makeup techniques to accentuate the eyes that you had taught us helped me to impress everyone with my performance.” The men’s team commented saying, “Shiseido shampoo helped us to wash off bad thoughts too – and be ready for a better performance.”
The men’s team captain, Kohei Uchimura, emphasized: “Gymnastics and cosmetics have the same goal: beauty. Let’s aim for it as one team!” Together with Asuka Teramoto, leader of the women’s team , they presented Shiseido the National Team uniform with autographs of the athletes.
