A communication app for couples born out of our online dating service.

Couples is a communication app that bonds couples together. The app allows couples to play slideshows of uploaded photos, share their event calendars, and check information about upcoming dates. The app was created with the hope to strengthen the bonds between couples so that they can always feel that they are close to one another.

Why we do what we do

Eureka was founded in 2008 to create products that enrich people's lives around the world. I became the CEO of Eureka in 2016 following in the steps of our co-founder, Yu Akasaka, and our original intentions remain unchanged.

When we say "things that enrich people's lives", we do not mean things that "would be nice to have". Instead, we mean things like "I was able to get married thanks to Pairs" and "I was able to avoid breaking up with my partner thanks to Couples". These are the kinds of significant impacts on people's lives that we strive to achieve for with our products.

Because these are the kinds of products we aim for, we follow a very sincere and uncompromising approach to product development and operations. We never forget about the millions of users who enjoy our product every day.

With pride in our craftsmanship, we strive to realize a society where lives of people around the world are enriched.
