Unique, Best-Selling Products and Services

■ walking bicycle

We wanted to build a vehicle that allows you to travel faster than walking, but that is easier to operate than a bicycle. Since it has three wheels, it is difficult to tip over. And since there is no saddle, users do not need to worry about the length of their skirt. Since there is no exhaust gas, it does not pollute the air. The “walking bicycle”, which is “friendly to both people and the environment”, addresses many modern concerns. Simply step on the pedals as if you are walking in order to move forward smoothly. A 3-speed pedelec motor makes it easy to ride on hilly roads. This new vehicle is friendly to both people and the environment.

Appeal to New Graduates/Mid-Career Recruits

Communication is an important aspect of teamwork. We hold a variety of events throughout the year in order to deepen friendships. Further, based on feedback from female employees, we opened a nursery and are striving to provide an environment in which women can work for a long-term if they want.
