The History of “ROKU”

Did you know that “ROKU” and his friends have been born in 2008 yet??
It is still shallow history, but let’s look back on the history from ROKU’s birth to the recent days.


2007

We described the illustration of a deer in handwriting as store POP on the windowpane of a Knick-Knack store. Then the illustration generated reactions among people who visit there. The illustration drawn at that time had become the model of ROKU.

2008

We made a post card based on the illustration we draw on the windowpane.This was the firtst memorable product of us. Then we named this character “ROKU”. The name “ROKU" is from Japanese Kanji “鹿” that means deers. We read “鹿” “ROKU” with its original Chinese pronunciation

2009 年 ー 2012

We had produced many goods like character badges, bags, ball-point pens, mugs, towels and so on. And also we had started to produce the collaborative goods with other corporations and shops since then.

2015

We had opened up real shop, “space ROKU” for interacting space of the illustrator and fans.Present.
