Besides these, the most important part of our environment is Lake Sanaru which is about 5 minutes walk from the office.
This lake is about 6 kilometers in circumference and is surrounded by a promenade. There are many places to stop and enjoy such as: 28 meters high "Mt" Negawa, rice patches, charcoal kilns, a pier, a bird watching station and small ponds which are homes for fireflies, frogs, kingfishers etc.
The name of our studio 'Drake' came from male ducks who come and stay on the lake every winter. They are the models of our first series of automata.
Since we spend a long time sitting in a workshop or watching computer displays, walking around the lake is our favorite pastime. It is also a perfect time to toy with new ideas.
