*What is SCRAP? *
In 2008, SCRAP Co., Ltd. was established. We created real escape games by renting out amusement parks and stadiums, created mysteries in books, apps, and TV programs, and while helping companies with their mystery-solving promotion plans, we became recognized by the public as a mystery event production company. A free paper production company from Kyoto that has gone out of business (and the free paper is currently on hiatus). Riding on the momentum, a fan club called “Shonen Detective SCRAP Team” was also formed. They collaborate with TV stations, record companies, etc., and are constantly creating new entertainment.
