Thought.

Finance is poetry.

When you are uneasy, when you are lonely, when you are lonely.
A word from someone who eased them.
The gently spoken word is
Like a star shining in the night sky
It will be a guide to illuminate the darkness.

For Sony Life Insurance
Designing (planning) people's lives,
There is a professional called a "life planner".
So that they can guide people's lives
Face each and every era,
I have spoken gently to each and every one of them.

Its appearance is like a warm poem.
Ginza Sony Park thought so,
I looked at "life" and "living" through poetry.

You may also come across poems that guide your life.
