Ayao Yamana says, "High class, sophisticated, no falsification, novelty, and tradition. I was constantly trained in my senses, not only in my work, but in this environment." At that time, Shiseido had already established designs using French-style arabesque patterns. As you can see from Shinzo Fukuhara's word "rich," making cosmetics requires a high degree of elegance and beauty as a job that creates beauty. In 1936, Yamana was reinstated at the request of Shiseido's president, Shinzo Fukuhara, and inherited that philosophy, contributing to the establishment of Shiseido's corporate image.
