2017 is declared the Year of Japan in Ukraine, and on the eve of Japanese Culture Day on November 3, we announced a competition for employees of Cryoin Engineering to write haiku about our Company, products, people and production facilities.
The prize for the first place was 2 tickets for the concert of Keiko Matsui, the world-famous Japanese pianist and composer, which held in Odessa on November 2 at the Opera House.
Haiku is a national Japanese form of poetry, three-line verse, a genre of poetic miniature, simply, laconically, capacitively and authentically depicting nature and man.
According to the results of the contest, the winner became the head of the laboratory LGA №3 and his haiku:
Cold separates and dominates,
Giving birth to rare gases.
Remember, engineer, that Winter is coming!
The jury noted that in this haiku as a mandatory element was used kigo - "seasonal word" (jap. 季 語).
2nd place of honor took haiku:
* Code of the samurai *
Production supervisor, like Samurai,
To achieve perfection in production,
Should shout to the subordinates: "Banzai!"
It was also suggested to replace Banzai with Kaizen - the Japanese principle of continuous improvement of production processes, development, supporting business processes and management, as well as all aspects of life.
