Established in 1875 by the Emperor Meiji, the Order of the Rising Sun is a Japanese decoration of honour awarded to both Japanese and foreigners who have made distinguished achievements in their field.
Mr Takaoka is humbled to be selected to receive such a prestigious award. It is a great motivation for him to continue to strive to create new and better Kutsurogi products that will bring smiles and relaxation to more people around the world for generations to come.
