The international resort group has experience developing and managing resorts around the world such as the Yakushima Iwasaki Hotel, located on Yakushima Island, parts of which are registered as UNESCO World Heritage. The Iwasaki Group have a philosophy for development that supports the sustainable and long term co-existence of nature and human society.
Ibusuki City (where the Iwasaki Group owned Ibusaki Iwasaki Hotel is located) and Rockhampton City are sister cities as a direct result of the relationship of the Iwasaki family with the Capricorn region.
The Iwasaki Foundation has built strong bonds between people in the community of both countries. The Foundation was established in 1985 by Mr Yohachiro Iwasaki and is dedicated to supporting vulnerable people.
Mr Yoshitaro Iwasaki was granted an Honorary Doctor of Business from Central Queensland University (CQU). He has contributed to the establishment of a Memorandum of Understanding between CQU and Kagoshima University.
