The time has come again for the "Marine Litter Zero Week".
On September 22, we participated in a litter-picking activity as part of the "National Autumn Marine Litter Zero Week" nationwide cleanup campaign organized by the Ministry of the Environment and the Nippon Foundation.
On Monday, June 9, 2022, under clear blue skies, 22 of our employees participated in a cleanup activity at a beach in Shimonoseki City.
For those who live in Japan, 2018 will be remembered as a year of big typhoons. With the first one, called Bolaven, being born just on the 3rd day of the year, we had already 26 typhoons so far, and 5 out of 26 had directly hit the Japanese archipelago. The typhoon can take place year-round, but its 'high season' in Japan is between August and October. It can therefore give a concern, a headache, troubles, or even actual damages to the organizing team of 'Kyokuyo Open' golf tournament, usually held in the first half of October every year.
On July 15, we had the hottest event of this.. already incredibly hot summer. It was (drumming) the 7th Shimonoseki Cutter Race ! If you still remember that the race is one of the big sport events annually hosted by our home town Shimonoseki, you probably remember also that the first ever challenge of our official boat team, "Kyokuyo Blue Stars", ended in bitter disappointment last year.
Many of you may have noticed an article in Nikkei - Japan's leading financial newspaper - published on February 24, entitled "10 best fresh food markets where you can enjoy tasting on the spot". Did you also notice that Shimonoseki's Karato Market was ranked #3, placed ahead of the world-famous Tsukiji Fish Market (#4) and Hakodate Morning Market (#6)?
The 57th "Kyokuyo Open" golf competition took place on October 6, 2017, at the Shimonoseki Golden Golf Club. This annual event, to which we invite many guests from our customers, suppliers, subcontractors and outsourcees, among others, gives us an important opportunity to express our gratitude to our stakeholders.
On August 27 was the day of... the 6th Shimonoseki Cutter Race ! It was sunny and windless, as the organizer wished, but exceptionally hot for the end of August. Finally, no less than 600 athletes, in 65 teams, participated in this popular event held in our home town.
