TOKYO-YKK Corporation (Headquarters: Tokyo Chiyoda-ku Kanda Izumi-cho 1, “YKK”)has created a short animation titled“FASTENING DAYS”in an effort to enhance the recognition of the YKK® brand and YKK® fastening products.

Our line of fastening products ranges from sliders, fiber and plastic products,to snaps and buttons.
YKK carries out thorough quality control under a fully integrated manufacturing system in order to deliver our products to the world.
The short animation,“FASTENING DAYS,” was created around the theme “fastening”in order to convey YKK’s brand message, “Little Parts. Big Difference” to the world.
The story takes place in a near future cosmopolitan city where people from many different countries live together
The main characters,Yoji and Kei,who help others with their handmade hi-tech machines,represent the message that small parts like zippers can “bring together” or “connect” things and be used to bridge differences and lead to a future full of possibilities
The song, “Hurly Burly,” released by Japanese pop group, Perfume, who made their US debut in September2014, is the theme song of animation.
