The origin of the word “RAPAS”

RAPAS is a fusion of the word “radiate” that evokes joy and sweeping radiance,
and the word “pass” that connotes connecting one person to another.
It is also similar to the pronunciation of “la paz” which means “peace.”
We named our company RAPAS in the hope of making people happy with products and technology
originating from our base in Shiga prefecture, Japan,
and having this happiness passed on from one person to the next.
