The main sites of research are located in the Kokubunji Site, Ibaraki Site, Yokohama Site, Hatoyama Site, as well as embedded laboratories at the University of Tokyo, Kyoto University, Hokkaido University, and in Hitachi Kobe Laboratory in the Kobe Biomedical Innovation Cluster.

Environmental activities are being pursued under the slogan of "Environment conscious R&D for the future.“ Read more about our Environmental Policy.

Further, as Hitachi’s philosophy is to “contribute to society through business,” our regional community activities are based what we can contribute as a laboratory, such as science & technology classes, employees’ knowledge, special interests and skills, the staff and employees at each site.
