Our thoughts

There are a lot of good things in the printed materials like text books, note books, pamphlets, guide books and etc.
On the other hand, there are other good things about the digital contents.
It would great if we can have good thing s in both world together.
That is our starting point and still our driving force to develop more.
Bridging the good things in the printed materials to the other good things in the digital contents.
We keep pioneering the possibilities of bringing good things in both world together.

Our products have been used in various fields.
In the educational field, they help to study languages alone.
For those visitors from abroad, they are used as multi-lingual tool to support the sight-seeing and living in Japan.
They are also used as authenticity judgement tool to identify what is real and what is fake.
Printed material will not go away, and we use them to bridge to the digital contents/services.
We will keep on providing tools to bridge the printed material to the digital contents, hoping we can make the life easier.
