Let’s Go to Kooba!” 2019 Open Factory on Business

Let’s go to Koba! Open Factory

Last year, the “Let’s Go to Kooba! The event was more successful than initially expected, and was a new initiative to open “KOBA”, the site of local industry, to the public as it is.

This year, we have decided to hold the event at the Higashi-Osaka Industrial Fair as a traveling open factory so that visitors can experience “KOBA” more closely. At the event, elite companies from Higashi-Osaka will gather for a live performance. In addition to experiencing craftsmanship live, visitors will be able to make musical instruments on the spot and participate in live performances, as well as experience “making things” by making stationery together with craftspeople. This will be a great opportunity to participate in and experience local industry, which is in fact closely connected to our daily lives, so please come and join us.
