The inventor of the HIMAWARI system :
Dr. Kei Mori (1932 -1990)
The late Dr. Mori, the then professor of the Department of
Science and Engineering in Keio University,
invented the solar lighting system and named it 'Himawari,'
after the Japanese word for sunflower.
He wanted to enable all the living things on earth to enjoy
more of the sun's benefits.
Nowadays, there is an acute demand for technological
developments that harmonize the economy with the
Dr. Mori's invention of Himawari promises many answers to
such problems as the need for energy saving, finding natural
alternative energy sources, preventing global-warming, and
dealing with waste and effluents.

the will of the late Dr. Mori and to contribute to mankind with
