Our Mission

Aiming for Sustainable Social Impact Through Architectural Preservation Witnessing novelty in our city is always exhilarating. However, there lies a delicate balance between innovative projects and needless destruction. The construction surge in the post-war era of rapid economic growth enhanced the quality of life for the Japanese people, but it also introduced a fleeting life cycle standard to Japanese architecture. We assert that each artifact holds critical importance, serving as a mirror reflecting the spirit of its time. This significance should be thoughtfully considered before deciding on demolition. We aspire not merely to preserve architecture based on sentimental value, but to recognize and appreciate the authentic worth of these artifacts. Our mission extends beyond preservation, aiming to educate those who may not have had the chance to understand the value of our rich architectural heritage. Through this, we seek to influence and enrich the perspectives of the Japanese community.
