In 1870, the Ministry of Communications inaugurated a telegraph service connecting Tokyo City and Yokohama City. This pivotal moment marked the beginning of Japan’s journey towards modern communication.
On July 31, 1952, the Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Public Corporation Act was passed, leading to the establishment of the Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Public Corporation (affectionately known as “Dendenkosha”) on August 1, 1952. This state-owned special corporation was the precursor to NTT and played a crucial role in the widespread adoption of telephone services across Japan.
During the nation’s period of rapid economic growth, Japan’s telephone and communication services saw extensive expansion. In 1985, the privatization of the Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Public Corporation marked a significant shift. To optimize its operations and broaden its business horizons, NTT restructured itself, creating subsidiaries for each business line, thereby laying the foundation for the NTT of today.
