Community Clean-up for the Hirosaki Cherry Blossom Festival
Our employees and their families, numbering about 200 in all, take part in a cleanup of the Hirosaki Cherry Blossom venue every year. This initiative, which was launched in 2010, ensures that visitors and tourists from around Japan can fully enjoy the beautiful blossoms at the festival.
Summer Youth Class (July)
Summer Youth Class
This initiative began in 2005 with a focus on elementary school students. It features Neputa Goldfish Class, Neputa Picture Class, and other traditional crafts. Currently, businesses are volunteering to provide a Motor Workshop. At the same time, environmental classes are held to create opportunities for raising awareness about the environment through experiments. Moreover, during company tours, employees from various departments who are experts in their fields deliver interesting lectures.
Comments from participants
  • "I learned the importance of the '3 Rs' — reduce, reuse and recycle — so from now one I will bring a shopping bag with me when I go shopping."
  • "I discovered many things I had not experienced at school."
  • Understood how a motor turns.
  • My interest on machines became bigger after visiting the factory which is normally an off limit to us.
Apple Picking (October)
Apple Picking
Canon Precision invited children from a daycare center to try their hand at picking apples on the company grounds. Apples picked by the children are processed into juice that is donated to local social welfare institutions.
Following the harvest, the children were treated to a picture show about the environment as part of the eco classroom.

Digital Camera Workshop (April–November)
Digital Camera Workshop
In this workshop, we showed fourth to sixth grade pupils how to use digital cameras. Each student was given a digital camera to shoot pictures of the school and playground. These pictures were then printed out and displayed. This workshop was intended to make the children more aware of their environment by encouraging them to look more closely at nature through a camera lens.
Workshop locations
  • Aomori City Okidate Elementary School
  • Hirosaki Chien Elementary School
  • Hirosaki Watoku Elementary School
  • Hirosaki Horikoshi Elementary School

Comments from participants
  • "It was very exciting to hold the camera."
  • "I felt grown-up, like a real photographer."
  • "The camera helped me to see so many different things that I don't normally notice."
  • "By looking more closely at things I usually don't notice, I learned that different stories can be revealed."
