SDGs planning
Introduction of reusable cup discounts
It is recommended to bring your own chopsticks and cup. If you can’t bring your own, you can get a 50-100 yen discount if you use the same cup from the second cup onwards.
Food drive (food circulation activity)
Our organization holds a food drive every time at the event venue. You can bring food from home and deliver it to the facility that needs it. At the last event, we were able to collect 130kg of food and donated it. Setting up an eco-station that encourages the sorting of garbage We will set up Kyoto City recycling bins in the venue and assign staff as sorting advisors.
Customers will be asked to separate their own garbage, but if you do not understand, please feel free to ask us.
Transmitting culture and traditional performing arts
I would like to transmit the Japanese culture of “Nagashi Somen” and Kyoto’s traditional performing arts of “Kyogen” to the next
, SDGs booth
The purpose is to provide opportunities for children who come to play, such as introducing environmentally friendly initiatives that our organization is working on and introducing card games that make them feel closer to SDGs.
