The Akan International Crane Center, Kushiro

Japanese cranes
The Japanese crane is considered to be the biggest and most beautiful bird in Japan. Mandom had renamed the company "Tancho Corporation" based on a then popular product "Tancho Tique".(Tancho means 'Japanese crane'.) The crane has been a valued motif of ours and since 2006 we have supported this Kushiro City “Tancho” Red-Crowned Crane Protection Association that feeds, protects, and studies this magnificent bird.
