Hi all,

Our company policy is to keep doing Bonjitettei (凡事徹底)which is shared with our subcontractors.



Bonjitettei is a Japanese word and the direct translation into English should be “do small basic things thoroughly”.

We think this is the most important concept for us as well as our sub-contractors because any outcome of our work is just a sum of normal small work.

If you can complete each small basic step towards your goal thoroughly you will get the incredible result as Warren Buffett, an American world most successful investor, noted:

“It is not necessary to do extraordinary things to do extraordinary results” 

Example of our Bonjitettei practice includes that we use our own checklists created based on our experience through design and construction work.

We thoroughly complete each small work shown on the lists with our sub contractors and consultants to make steps towards our goal.

Japan Homes aims to provide the best service for our clients by keep doing small easy things that anyone can do in a thorough way that no one can do.

Ichiro Suzuki, a Japanese professional baseball player who have had more than 3,000 hits in his career in Major League Baseball in the US, commented:

“How to reach your dream and goal is only one way: to do just small steps.”

Qualification: Degree of Architecture Studies and Graduate Diploma of Psychology (University Of Auckland) ; 2nd Grade Cad Technician (Japan)
Family: Extremely lovely wife, wonderfully kind mother in low, awesomely hardworking chickens, surprisingly lazy cat and unbelievably naughty dog.

I love architecture and design so much that I have been to so many buildings and places around the world such as Sydney Opera House in Sydney, CCTV building in Beijing, Empire State Building in New York, Royal Palace in Bangkok, Houryu-Ji in Nara, etc. However, the residential building attracts me the most. For nearly 10 years I have visited heaps of local and historical homes around New Zealand which I feel the builders’ great workmanship as well as occupants’ life.

From this experience my aim is to design and provide the comfortable and affordable houses with the spirit of Japanese workmanship that people enjoy and improve their quality of life.

In this blog I write my everyday experience of work to show what is a designer’s work and how it goes at Japan Homes.

Any comments or questions are very welcome.
