Alon in Japan: the Casio Yamagata Factory

Alon in Japan: the Casio Yamagata Factory

Postby koimaster » January 14th 2016, 4:05pm

When Alon first told me he and his dad David would be flying out to Japan for a Casio factory visit courtesy of Casio Europe, I could tell he was VERY excited. Having joined him on numerous occasions to similar trips to Switzerland, I know for a fact he very much enjoys to meet the people behind the brands, to see their factories, and to hear their stories. And now Casio? To say he was looking forward to his first visit to Japan would be an understatement.

Yesterday Alon sent me the first two batches of pictures he took, along with a summary of his impressions. In the post below you’ll find my transcription of these files.

Casio Factory Trip

A couple of weeks ago we [Ace Jewelers & Watchbase] were invited by Casio Europe to join a small group of retailers for a factory visit in Japan. The group consisted of a total of 8 people: 1 Swedish Casio Authorized Dealer, 1 Austrian Casio AD, 4 German retailers, and us. The invitation both surprised and humbled us, as with Ace Jewelers we just stopped with Casio as we decided to close the boutique that carried it.

So here we are, a few weeks later. Last Monday me and my dad flew out to Tokyo and joined to other members of our group, who all flew in from their home countries. Jet-lagged and all, we were all rather happy our welcome in Tokyo was very relaxed. For dinner we joined the head of Casio Europe at a nice Tempura restaurant.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
