Designs

When we incorporate carved motifs into sliding paper doors or carved wooden panels of Japanese style, we pay elaborate attention to which direction the motifs should face. For example, we set the direction of the motifs of auspicious birds like a crane to show them coming into the house from outside, hoping to bring good luck to the family. Craftsmen always devote themselves to work for the customers, deeply wishing their happiness. Japanese designs hold such deep thoughts within.

Craftsmen Craftsmanship

Craftsmen

I have managed to spend my days feeling bewildered as a craftsman. “For what am I doing? Does this work mean much to me? Even though I have got into the world of manufacturing because I liked it, I cannot help feel that I should have something else to do. But we should never skip this time of obscurity. That’s because without early years of preparatory training, I think we’ll never grow firm roots as a human being as well as a craftsman.

Tradition

It may appear that traditional crafts merely follow lines of techniques, traditions and know-how as its only mission. However, the moment we lose “challenging spirit”, traditional crafts will lose its splendor.

Wood

As represented by Horyuji temple, which is the oldest wooden architecture in Japan, Japan has had “culture of wood” since early times. Well, I might say the above-mentioned in the past tense.

Toyama

I saw the beautiful Tateyama mountain range from a window of the hospital where my father was staying .
It is especially beautiful in spring, because the snow accumulated during the winter accentuates the beauty of ridge lines. The view of the Tateyama mountain range seen from Toyama plain is amazing.
Every day, when I visited my father to his room, I watched the Tateyama mountain range. On a sunny day, a rainy day or a cloudy day, mountains remain unchanged. Only human beings are changing. I wondered, “How many loves and deaths of people have those mountains seen from the above in the sky?”

Information Technology

Information technology is not something cold. It has a warm function to link people. Those who work hard to live with the use of IT are given a small bonus called “happiness”.

Manufacturing Business / Creating Products

As a result of having discontinued the conventional fitting products, the sales of that year temporarily plunged, which hit a record low in the history of Tanihata. However, we did not go into red nor got cash-strapped, either; on the contrary, we could make the borrowings go down. And we saw increased order of Kumiko Ranma. Above all, when I saw our craftsmen with happy faces, saying “We have enjoyed working this summer,” as the physical burdens on them were lightened, I realized that my decision was right.
