He passed away at home in Kyoto, Japan, on August 24, 2022, due to natural causes.

“Kyocera would like to express its sincere appreciation to everyone who extended support and friendship toward Dr. Inamori throughout his lifetime. A private wake and funeral have been held, mainly among close family members, and this announcement was made after the completion of memorial services.

“Please note that Dr. Inamori’s family respectfully requests mourners refrain from making condolatory visits, telegrams of sympathy, offers of condolence money, funeral offerings, etc. We sincerely appreciate your kind understanding regarding these arrangements.
