The switches are variants of the Kailh "Box" switches, and the name "Hako" (箱) is Japanese for "box". The switches have transparent top housings that are compatible with both SMD LEDs and through-hole diodes.
The Hako Clear was designed supposedly to have a feel reminiscent of both Cherry MX Clear and a Topre switch. Mirroring the Halo switches, the Hako Clear uses the same slider shape as the Hako True with a different spring.
