Fujisankei Communications Group

Fujisankei Communications Group (?, Fuji Sankei Gur?pu), abbreviated FCG, is a keiretsu in Japan. This media conglomerate was founded by Nobutaka Shikanai.[1] In 1991, it was the fourth-largest media company in the world[2] and the largest one in Japan.[3] In the same year, the company's yearly revenue was $5 billion.[4] After a 2008 reorganization, most of the companies that are considered as part of the Fujisankei Group are owned by Fuji Media Holdings.

In the 1960s, the company founded the Hakone Open-Air Museum in Hakone, Kanagawa. The museum houses over 1,000 sculptures and features art by Henry Moore, Constantin Brâncu?i, Barbara Hepworth, Rokuzan Ogiwara, and K?tar? Takamura.[5]

In October 1989, Fujisankei Communications paid Ronald Reagan $2 million to help the company with public relations. Reagan toured Japan for nine days and made two speeches.[4][6][7]

In 1991, Fujisankei Communications spent $50 million to found the Fujisankei California Entertainment, a film company. The film company was headed by Masaru Kakutani, who produced Antarctica and The Adventures of Milo and Otis, which were the two highest-grossing "domestically made" movies in Japan.[8]

Fujisankei Communications International is a subsidiary of Fujisankei Communications Group.[3]
