About Construction

The outlook of the Japanese construction sectors is brighter than it has been for years.

Stones & Tiles

Demand for building stone in Japan is influenced by peaks and troughs in the construction industry. Stricter building standards have reduced the number of new builds and, as a result, imports of building stone are down.

Architecture

Since the 1990s and the end of Japan’s bubble economy, Tokyo’s architectural trends followed the new “low-growth” economic paradigm, drifting away from postmodernism towards a different perception of modernity.

Eco Construction

Japanese houses are mostly new and largely designed to only last for roughly 30 years. Culturally, the land is seen as more important than the house on it.

Ceramic & Glass

Japan’s traditional craft industries, ceramic and glass-making, have recently found new applications in the automotive and aerospace sectors as well as in the production of technological devices.
