    Hi there, I have visited the Hamilton Gardens during Easter Holiday, which is a spiritual place for me, especially the Japanese garden. (日本語訳下にあります) What I Felt In Japanese Garden On the visit of the Gardens I looked thorough the Italian and Indian garden and finally reached the Japanese garden where I felt something special, like feeling the universe. When I was looking at the Japanese garden from inside the garden house with the low-hang eaves I understood the concept of the Japanese garden which the garden is a part of the universe. (Japanese Garden in Hamilton Gardens) (Looking the Japanese Garden from inside the garden house) It is like seeing the outside world from within the tiny self. Compared to the whole universe myself is […]

  • Japan Homes in 2016

      2017/04/12    What I feel 自分が感じたこと

    Thanks for visiting our blog. (日本語訳下にあります) Japan Homes did the first internal meeting in 2017 – 2018 financial year. In regards to last year business, each company staff expressed their impressions and comments on everything related to this company And talked about the objectives of 2017 etc. It was a good meeting. We discussed the following topics that how we provided our comfortable and affordable homes to our clients. Human Resources I think that all of our company staff are good people. After 10 years of management, what I have noticed is that, even if you do not have a lot of work experience but are “honest, serious, faithful to the basic principles” and can work in this way everyday you will be able to provide […]

  • 2017 New Year Greeting

      2017/01/01    What I feel 自分が感じたこと

    END OF FIRST DECADES OF JAPAN HOMES (日本語訳下にあります) In Auckland in the last year there was movement in various ways, such as the Prime Minister’s resignation at the end of the fiscal year, real estate prices were rising remarkably from the first half, the government has taken measures from October to enforce laws to restrict financing for investors who own multiple properties, and the Auckland Unitary Plan = AUP has become operative. For Japan Homes, it came to the ten-year milestone including personal management period of time. Ten years ago, there was no Japanese construction company to rely on, and it was only thanks to my family, customers, and SUB who really supported me, that I could continue building our business from zero for ten […]

  • SAKURA at Tashkent タシケントの桜

      2016/07/07    The Way We Work 仕事のこだわり, What I feel 自分が感じたこと

    The other day, I read an amazing story about Navoi theater at Tashkent city in Uzbekistan. The beautiful brick building is an opera house that hasn’t been damaged at all when a big earthquake in 1966. This was built by Japanese prisoners of war. While most buildings collapsed under the influence of the earthquake, The Navoi theater which was built by earnest Japanese POW workers, stood erectly as if nothing happened. The theater is one of the four biggest theaters admired equally with an opera house of Moscow, Leningrad (current St. Petersburg), Kiev in the former Soviet Union era. The brick building has 1400 seats in 3 stories above the ground, the first floor under the ground. Although it could be said the whole Tashkent city […]

  • Artistic sense in structural design caluculations 構造計算のなかの芸術性

      2016/06/25    The Way We Work 仕事のこだわり, What I feel 自分が感じたこと

    The other day I heard an interesting story. This is US story, there was a building designed to withstand an earthquake with an intensity of six, and it’s actually ok when it happened. After that it collapsed at level seven. It should be praised as for the structural design and cost performances. First time when I heard this, it didn’t really appeal to me but I understood it. We can install 6 steels instead of 3 for structure. This is easy. If this works, can we only see a chart and no need engineers? Decision with only looking at one part is very easy. However I think that the most interesting points are calculating structural designs by considering building costs, speed and future, then artistic sense can […]
