Mitsubishi is not a conglomerate, but a group of (mostly) historically related independent companies headquartered in Japan; for those who wonder, Mitsubishi Pencil (the makers of those marvelous UNI-BALL pens) is the Mitsubishi company that didn't come from the same family tree. Mitsubishi companies have manufactured or marketed everything from pineapple to magnetic and optical media to "KIBO" (the Japanese Experiment Module of the International Space Station), the pride of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. Mitsubishi Corporation (one of the Mitsubishi trading companies) still sells sneakers in Japan as of July 2004.
