Our brand has its origin in Edo period, when the first generation entered the world of sculpture. The first generation learned his skill from sculpture field, and eventually sublimated into gargoyle roof tile manufacture.
As a result, our gargoyle roof tiles are the ultimate combination with sculpture, making it different from any other ordinary gargoyle roof tiles.
With advancement of technologies, the number of craftsmanship has taken over by auto-manufacture, and we are the last one in this field still rely 100% on hand-made processes.
This can be considered as a burden, but we will always be proud and responsible to be the one, and will continue to strive to protect this traditional culture of Japan.
