Whether business would continue or not depended on the "Steampunk Exhibition." Luckily, it was featured on various media and was a huge success. Steampunk accessories made of surplus factory materials were highly evaluated.
This is how Sanko Die Cast came to be known. The project was named "Sanko Steam" and two men from a different world became integral members of this society.
At that time, Mishima Ryosyu, the feudal lord, decided to visit Sanko Die Cast. Sanko Die Cast was very excited to receive this great honor. After discussing between the Sanko Steam members, they came up with one idea – surprise Mishima Ryosyu. After careful deliberation, they decided to create a car decorated steampunk style and set up a showroom to exhibit the car at the same time.
Making a customized car was easy for them since the company was originally an automotive parts manufacturer. The problem was how to decorate the showroom interior. Sanko asked the students at Fujinomiya-Higashi High School to make exhibition panels, and the students heartily accepted.
On the day of their visit... Mishima Ryosyu toured the factory. The tense atmosphere of Sanko Steam members was intensified even more to see the only woman wearing beautiful kimono in the group.
As it turns out, the Mishima Ryosyu clan liked the showroom and customized car as expected. In addition, the woman in the kimono highly praised the efforts of the Sanko Steam team.
Come to light, the woman in the kimono was the wife of Mishima Ryoushu, and she was the one who suggested their visit. After visiting, she asked Sanko Steam to make some accessories for her; however, they struggled to "make ladies' accessories."
After careful consideration, they decided to add a female designer to the team, and as a result, Mishima Ryoushu's wife was so happy with the gifts that she then proposed a new project.
To the team's surprise, she asked them to make a Japanese helmet (kabuto)!
Will the team be successful in this big project?
