The Chronological Exhibition Area (The Hoichi Kai Corner) Within the te
In the chronological exibition area, the Hoichi-Kai corner may catch your eye.
Amidst the intensifying labour movements in 1920,Konosuke formed the "Hoichi-Kai", an employee organization in which all employees of the company, including himself participated.
Why the name "Hoichi-Kai"? That was developed based on their slogan, "We all walk together one step at a time." Here, take a look at the real flag and hat of the Hoichi-Kai, and listen to the first company song stemming from the Hoichi-Kai society song.
