Traditional Japanese Architecture ― Hand Made

Hisao AKIMOTO/Founder and President of Heisei Corporation

Founder and President of Heisei Corporation

When I started the company in 1989, the Japanese economy was booming and the construction industry was experiencing severe shortage of construction workers especially carpenters. Despite the shortage, young Japanese people did not want to take the job, because the job was too tough and the wages were not as high as other “easy” jobs.

It was then clear to me that there would be much more severe shortage of such craftsman in the near future, because of aging population and lack of demand to take the job.

From the start up stage of my company, I organized in-house carpenters and treated their salaries as the same level as our designers, and construction managers. Eventually, I started to hire carpenters with degree on architecture.

What persuaded them to join the company was my passion to train them to become the top carpenter, or “Toryo” who not only build houses, but also design, manage, and sell architectures to clients all by themselves.

These highly motivated and skillful craftsmen have gained strong support from our clients.
My passion now is to provide “Sukiya”, a traditional Japanese architecture for executives in the global market, and our carpenters are ready.


To inspire the art and comfort of Japanese architecture in the U.S luxury housing market.


To entertain our customers and employees with tailor-made Japanese architecture.
