Aiming for regional revitalization and human resource development through the “water” environment
Kansei Kogyo Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Setagaya-ku, Tokyo;
Representative Director: Kenji Hasegawa; hereinafter referred to as Kansei Kogyo) is a research and development facility for sewer pipe management, “Atsugi-no-Mori Environmental Research Center”. We are pleased to inform you that we have completed the inspired “water protection toilet” that anyone can use.
Kansei Kogyo’s job is to carefully protect water.
And it is to create as many “water environment supporters” as possible through the water environment. In order to fulfill this mission, we opened the “Atsugi Forest Environmental Research Center” in April of this year in Atsugi City, Kanagawa Prefecture. First, as the first phase of construction, we will build a research and training building to improve sewage technology, the Hasegawa Memorial Hall where you can learn about the history of sewage, a biotope and a promenade, etc., and the second phase of construction in November this year will be inspired by the sewer pipes. We have completed a “water protection toilet” that can be used freely by anyone who has received.
Through this facility, as a place where anyone can experience “sewage”, we aim to connect to the importance of water resources and secure future “water” human resources, and start full-scale activities to protect the water environment. We will continue to.

About the “water protection toilet”
The idea of ”a place to protect the water environment in the forest of Atsugi” is the origin.
By creating a form and space reminiscent of a cylinder (pipe), we expressed the identity of our company working on “pipe”. The plane shape of the overlapping circles creates the breadth and depth of the space, and is also connected to Kansei Kogyo’s corporate logo (K mark). By using white as the base color, we superimposed the image of “pure”. A water garden using the essence of “water” is provided, and the private room is a space where you can see the surface of the water. increase. In addition, it is the building that symbolizes Kansei Kogyo that visitors to our facility see first.
