The Sasaki Kogei factory, based in Asahikawa, Hokkaido, has been producing wooden crafts every day since 1975. Their motto, which translates as 'creating products that stir delight and wonder in the world, but give peace of mind' reflects their appreciation of the benefit of wood - in its own right a thing of beauty and versatility - and a desire to promote harmonious coexistence and co-prosperity. Any wasted wood chips and sawdust are collected and compressed, then used as fuel in the long chilly winters. Further evidence of their desire to be self-sufficient and eco-friendly, Sasaki Kogei created their own furnace systems that require almost no fossil fuels, even in bitter cold Asahikawa.
