Kamen Rider 1 is ready to do his part to promote to clean energy as Japan braces for a long, hot summer.
The profile of the fictional motorcycle-riding hero will be featured on a small wind power generator made by Sakuraenergy Co.
The energy-saving product maker will hold a trade fair on June 29-July 1 at the Spiral Garden hall in Tokyo's Aoyama district near the Omotesando subway station.
The "Mirai no Tsubasa" (The Wing of Future) exhibition will celebrate the introduction of the Sakuraenergy wind power generation system. The SE150 model features the profile of Kamen Rider 1.
Kamen Rider 1 became wildly popular after the first of the long-running live-action TV series began airing in the 1970s. The Kamen Rider 1 uses his wind-powered transformation belt to turn into the superhero.
Two Sakuraenergy models will be on display at the fair.
According to the company, the 2.8-meter tall SE3000 model is capable of generating 3 kilowatts of electricity, while the smaller SE150 model is capable of generating 150 watts.
The company is also collaborating with the creators of famous anime and manga characters to exhibit about 100 miniature plastic models.
In addition, a free 60-minute workshop will be held on energy issues and wind power generation.
