About us

The history of Akazawachoyo began from a Kyoto craftsman in Muromachi period. During the culture years in Edo period, he moved to Edo (Tokyo) as the restoration manager of Nikko Toshogu, traditional methods of production have been handed down over the generations so that even today and the Buddhist altar store was born.

Now it is positioned as "the second business start-ups" and we make a contribution to SGI customers with historic tradition and new ideas to lead in the new era.

We have delivered many Zushi (Portable shrine) and Buddhist altar articles to multilateral halls and sales agents. We will do our best to make a contribution to SGI customers.
