ABOUT TAKASHO

Takasho was established in 1980 based on the theme “HEART & ART”. Our objective was to become a global creator of elegant gardens and garden-based lifestyles.We firmly believe the elements of wind, light, water and greenery should stir the heart.Based on this concept we have developed our retail business for PRO use products (materials needed for design and construction) and HOME use products (user-friendly DIY materials). Takasho is involved in product planning and development, production, business proposals and sales. We create suitable concepts based on area, culture and ideology with excellent Japanese quality, using our own global network.
