But milk and other dairy products such as butter, cheese, and yogurt may not have achieved its ubiquitous position if it wasn’t for advancements in dairy farming technologies. SCCJ visited DeLaval K.K., the world leading maker of milking equipment, at their Shinjuku office to learn about the company and the future of the industry.
Ever had the urge for a kanelbulle (Swedish for cinnamon roll) in suburban Tokyo but got lost in transition (never mind translation)? Rest assured: From now on you’ll be on a roll.

SCCJ visited founder Ms. Ai Sekiguchi at her chic café on a fine sunny afternoon to find out what’s cooking at her shop this winter.
Table tennis or ping pong, invented in England during the late 19th century, is today one of the most widely played sports in the world; by some estimates, more than 300 million people have taken it up as their main hobby. STIGA SPORTS, founded in Sweden in 1934, is one of the leading manufacturers of table tennis equipment and table tennis wear. Even though their products were available for purchase at stores across Japan for many decades, STIGA SPORTS JAPAN K.K. was only established in November 2016.
