We collaborated with the Yokohama plant of Kirin Brewery Company, which is sited in our neighborhood, to organize a plant tour for local community residents. We invited them to a plant for heavy electrical machinery, which is a field that the residents were most likely not familiar with. During the tour, we showed the visitors 3D computer-assisted design (CAD) screens and took the visitors on a tour while riding a locomotive used for in-plant transportation to show the visitors the plant's operations in a way simple enough for even children to understand.
