Three staff members from Barrowford telecommunications company Denwa have been rewarded with an all-expenses paid trip to Tokyo for the outstanding commitment and dedication they have shown to the company.

Chris Porter, Danny Howarth and Steph Holroyd got the chance to make the trip along with managing director Rob Scott as a thank you for their hard work over the past year and to see where Rob gained his inspiration for setting up Denwa, which means telephone in Japanese.

He was head of the Inter-tel Technical Team at their Tokyo HQ in 2005 when he developed the idea for Denwa.

Sales Manager Chris, Telecoms Engineer Danny and Service Co-ordinator Steph spent five days in Tokyo with Rob.

A packed itinerary was planned for the staff to give them a complete picture of Japan’s extensive history and exciting future.

Highlights included visits to Akibara’s ultramodern electric town, Asakusa’s ancient Buddhist temple, Sensō-ji, the Tokyo Skytree, the second tallest tower in the world and Thunder Dolphin, a rollercoaster cutting through a hole in the LaQua building, as well as spending an evening at a sumo wrestling event.
