On Friday, May 25th, Daikin America received a recognition and appreciation award at the Daikin Festival in Decatur, AL from the Consul General of Japan in Atlanta, Takashi Shinozuka. This prestigious award is given to those who have made outstanding efforts to promote goodwill and advance business, cultural interchanges, and mutual understanding between people of Japan and America.
Daikin America has continuously supported local Japan-related organizations around Alabama such as the Japan-America Society of Alabama and tirelessly promoted grassroots relationships between Japan and America. One of their significant contributions to local communities is the Daikin Festival in May where people learn about Japan through music, food, and cultural activities.
Additionally, Daikin offers a Japanese homestay program to local teachers and students. Those who have been selected as participants will stay at Daikin employees’ houses in Japan for 10 days to become immersed in Japanese culture.
