Hi Everyone,

As we did for the previous years Japan Homes has joined Japan Day this year and very much enjoyed talking to visitors to our booth.


Japan Day 2019

Japan Day 2019 happened at Eden Park in Auckland with a great amount of visitors and many exciting events went on.

Our booth also welcomed a number of visitors and discussed their future new home projects.
For this year most of the enquiries were about subdivision + new homes which I think reflects the housing trend that the city demands many more new homes to deal with increased population.
Because we are the Japanese we are good at designing and building functional & cost-effective medium to small residential units on limited sized sections so gave them advises from these points of view.

Financial perspective of new home projects are very important too so these type of advises were also given to the visitors.

By the way, JAPA-HO kun (our company’s image character) showed up at our booth and attracted a lot of people!!

Thank you for visiting and talking to us and see you again Next Year!!!!

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.
Please let me know!
