Company Mantra

Sunmark Publishing.

Your life in your hands

A Sunmark book is physically light, yet it contains much energy from many people. Consider the author’s lifelong effort, the editor’s enthusiasm, possibly an artist’s visual contribution, the printers’ dedication, the hard work of the sales staff, the long hours from the delivery team, plus the care and attention from the bookstore workers. Then, of course, the critical participation of the reader, who we hope may be inspired by the book and carry this energy onwards in life.

A message from the President of Sunmark Publishing

Sharing our mutual ideals and passion,
so books may continue to be loved across the world


Nobutaka Ueki

Publisher and President, Sunmark Publishing Inc.

For over 40 years our company has published numerous, enduring bestsellers. In just the last 2 decades Sunmark has produced 6 million-sellers. We are truly thankful to the increasing number of readers with whom our ideas and ways of thinking resonate.

Books that are loved and popular throughout generations often hold global truths. At Sunmark, we constantly strive to produce such books. In other words, rather than chase after the transient mainstream, we are more concerned with making books that have their own energy, and developing that energy to its highest possible level. We believe that for books to continue to be read far and wide, they must contain a truly special and original energy.

In order to make such books, the creators must devote their full power and passion to their job. This includes Sunmark’s helpful, persistent, meticulous work ethos, dedicated to delivering the best possible finished product into the hands of the author and reader. This takes a united team of dedicated people in editing, sales, and production, who all share the same ideals. Overall, combining talents to provide authors with the intellectual stimulation, motivation, and support often needed to make great books. This is the cornerstone of Sunmark Publishing’s philosophy and the ideals we seek to fulfill daily.

We believe that the truth is always written in a straightforward manner. By rephrasing complicated concepts into simple terms. Making deeper ideas more palpable. In our own small way, Sunmark aims to provide our readers with new surprises and warm encouragement in paving the way through life.

Wherever there are people, there is also sadness, suffering, happiness, learning, and work that never seems to end. We strive to see through the eyes of our readers so we can pass on the energy and passion of people across generations and countries.

Welcome to Sunmark Publishing. We sincerely hope you enjoy our books.

Sunmark Publishing Philosophies

Publishing books with surprises that reverse common sense

People are able to change when they are surprised by something. Change is growth. Strive to produce books that can change readers and eventually the world. Create books that shed light on a future that our generation has not yet discovered.

A million-seller publishing company operated by a select few

Even though Sunmark has only 40 employees, by concentrating effort on their work without restricting themselves to areas of responsibility, Sunmark has so far been able to produce 6 million-selling books.

Making a book out of the author's core message

If you just edit a book to give it a theme that you think might be popular, you will only end up scattering the energy that the author put into the book. By focusing on an unusual, yet essential part that maybe even the author had never realized, you can produce a book that is full of the author's original energy.
