The Threat of Entry

The force of this one is high, because is easy to open and enter in the market with a Sanrio boutique, licensing the Sanrio brand or even carrying Sanrio products in your store.

The Power of Suppliers

Since Sanrio it’s already the supplier for Sanrio franchisee’s stores with licensing or wholesale, we can say that the power of supplier brand its low inside the Sanrio factories around the world but high for the different stores that sell Sanrio Inc. products. The company is not limited to character promotion through their products but also through publishing and movie productions. The company also partners with various food establishments of which it also shares franchises. Sanrio has rights to Peanuts characters in Japan and owns an animatronics establishment known as the Kokoro Company, Ltd. whose most popular android is known as Actroid. Taiwan's second largest airlines, Eva Air, decided in October 2005 to use the Hello Kitty brand on flight routes between Taipei, Tokyo and Fukuoka. By paying Sanrio a franchisee fee, Eva Air has dedicated an entire Airbus A300-200 to the Hello Kitty brand and its cutie-like universe.

The Power of Buyers

History of Origami

...1800's. These manuals contained many traditional forms as well as standard folds and procedures. Modern origami is a product of a cultural exchange between East and West. In truth it is not as much a part of Japanese culture as it is an amalgam of Europe and Japan. In the 1930's, a modern origami master, Akira Yoshizawa created thousands of origami forms, many of which we use today. He is the creator of the system of symbols and terms commonly used in origami books. Bibliography Anderson, Eric M. "Origami History."

...1 LOBSTER´S En junio 2010 la empresa Lobster´s tenía ya 12 años de actividad pionera en el sector de la pesca de langosta de altura. Esta empresa, con sede en Massachussets, capturó el 16% de langosta de altura en 2009 y era el mayor productor individual de langosta en América del Norte. J. S. Graciano, Gerente desde 2007, anticipaba una posición todavía más dominante y, a largo plazo, contemplaba una integración mayor de la que ya había iniciado: “Estamos tratando de revolucionar la industria de la langosta mediante la aplicación de management y tecnología a lo que había sido, hasta ahora, una industria artesanal. Otras empresas se han convertido en gigantes mediante la reestructuración de negocios como el cangrejo, la anguila, los aguacates, el apio y el pollo; nosotros deseamos convertirnos en la Procter & Gamble del negocio de la langosta. Antes de que hiciéramos accesibles los recursos de la pesca de altura no había manera de realizar esta revolución, pero ahora existe la oportunidad Hemos acariciado la idea de establecer una cadena de restaurantes que presentara nuestra langosta de forma similar a Black Angus o Red Coach (cadenas locales que ofrecen solamente una pequeña selección de carne de ternera como menú). Pensamos que es bastante con lo que tenemos ahora. Los sistemas de distribución de Deep Sea y de Windsor, que compramos el pasado año fiscal, nos han proporcionado una cierta integración vertical “ Lobster´s esperaba empezar a recuperarse de......

Cliché, but that was how it felt. It suddenly hit me that this curiously satisfying, happy feeling, is what community service is truly about. On my second proyect I went to the Marathon of the NY which i was assigned to stay on the 14 mile vernon boulevard . The teacher who was to charge of this was Ms Jolley . so each student was assigned to one mile and they have to give the runners water and put in order the cups after that we clenaned all the street sweeping everything then put on the garbage .It was to much work beacuse i have to reaction so slowly for them and was trying to do it more fast .I felt so amazing i really enjoyed doing this even it was no a good day (day was so cold) for the marathon . After that day, my attitude changed. On my third proyect i participated giving breakfast to the workers on the morning during thanksgiving day . It was so hard wake up too early even i desire to go .

Native American Sustainability

...to a part of nature was an injury to all (Proyect). In fact, many Native American creation myths state that the people came from the earth and were responsible for protecting it. From one of the Lakota (my people) creation myths: From red, white, black and yellow earth, he made men and women. The Great Spirit gave the people his sacred pipe and told them to live by it. He warned them about the fate of the people who came before them. He promised all would be well if all living things learned to live in harmony. But, the world would be destroyed again if they made it bad and ugly. The belief in being part of nature and the care and respect nature deserved, led many Native Americans to develop sustainable ecological practices. Proyect of Colombia University gives several examples: • During the gathering of wild rice, the Menominee people of Wisconsin always made certain that some of the rice harvested went back into the water to ensure that there would be future harvests. • The Cahuilla people of California never harvested plants unless they could prove that the plant could be found elsewhere. • The Cherokee tribes of the Midwest/Southeast would not gather the first herbs they passed, but would wait until they encountered the fourth plant because by passing up the first three herb plants they ensured that there would be future growth. Nor was this sustainability limited to plant life, it extended to animal care as well as Proyect points out: • The Hopi tribes of......

Inter-Cultural Translatability of the Japanese Horror Movie Ring

...films. Then, I will analyze plot and themes of the film and compare them to the Hollywood remake. Finally, I will briefly summarize the cultural influence of Ring. Ring as a media product and its merchandizing strategy Nowadays despite the down downgrading economic situation that prevailed since late 1980s Japan is famous for its easily recognizable and popular media products. This could be due to the very skillful product merchandizing. We can identify two distinctive approaches in merchandizing. First, something that doesn’t look like Japanese on the surface bears something truly “japaneseness” in the inside. The example of this approach that comes to mind at ones is Hello Kitty, a fictional character produced by the Japanese company Sanrio. Hello Kitty is portrayed as an anthropomorphic white cat with a red bow and according to her creators she was born in the suburbs of London in England. The crude and overly simplistic depiction of Kitty does not bear any cultural background, but now 40 years later after her creation it is a symbol of the Japanese kawaii culture. Originally aimed at the pre-adolescent female market as a mere toy, in the present days the Hello Kitty products range from mass market items to high-end consumer products and rare collectibles. It product variety has expanded and goes all the way from dolls, stickers, greeting cards, clothes, accessories, school supplies and stationery to purses, clothes, toasters, televisions, other home appliances,......

Hello Kitty and Dear Daniel - Why They Appeal to Such Broad Segments in Asia.

...desired”, this culture originated with the 15 to 18 year old girls in Japan. Soon, marketers and advertisers in the fashion, publishing and the cute-little-gadgets industries recognizing the wide potential and appeal of this niche segment began to leverage on it. As this market segment is typified by the characteristic “not how much they spend” but “it’s that they all buy the same things”, hot items (like Hello Kitty) when caught by the wave can easily reach 100% market penetration in weeks! In short, kawaii became a complementary force in proliferating the Kitty mania. This culture actually grew beyond the original 15-18 year olds and also extended beyond the Japanese shores into and throughout Asia economies. As the kitty mania caught on, Sanrio, the company wisely launched a blitz of the Hello Kitty merchandise covering clothing, stationeries, house wares, ATM and credit cards and even condoms! There’s also the Hello Kitty cafes, a theme park, hotel, notebook computers, motorcycles, jeep etc. Incidentally too, Hello Kitty was appointed by the Japanese board of tourism as their official tourism ambassador and later as the United States children’s ambassador for UNICEF in 1983. All these greatly augmented Hello Kitty’s image and penetration into the Asian markets. In fact, it is also credited as to have given birth to the Nippon culture charge. ii.
