The Matsushita Memorial Library was established in May, 1994 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Konosuke Matsushita, the founder of Panasonic Corporation and the PHP Institute.

This Library is open to the public, and aims to present a wide range of Konosuke Matsushita's thoughts that give deep insight into his life, way of thinking, his management philosophy and his ideas on the govering of a nation, together with his perspectives on world politics.
