president of Japanese Wood Consulting president of YAMAKYO, Inc.

Having graduated from the department of science at Gakushuin
University in 1999, I am now the third president of  YAMAKYO, Inc. a
forestry and timber company founded in 1955. We produce and sell high
quality lumber harvested from the 400 hectares of mountainous forest
land that we manage and own. Our lumber is highly regarded as
materials for everything from national buildings and private homes to
furniture and wooden products. Additionally, we also use our
connections to act as matchmakers for other businesses. Our activities in
this area have been praised on TV and in magazines, and in 2013 we
received a letter of gratitude from the Japan Wood-Products Information
& Research Center (JAWIC). I am currently working in the capacity of
chairman for the Wood Farming Promotion Committee of Gifu
Prefecture, and as an advisor to the Gifu Prefecture Youth Association of
Commerce and Industry.
