Buying Japanese furniture 2011/3/25 09:17

I'm interested in buying beautiful, high-end Japanese-styled furniture.

I've heard that Mr.Chuzo Tozawa iŒห‘๒’‰‘ jof Hinoki Kogei company produces beautiful furniture. Just wondering:

. Does this company have a website?

. Where could I buy their products?

Thank you very much for your help.

Kind regards.

Hi minami1983,

Thank you so, so much for your reply. It's a great help.

I've used the Google Language to translate the website info in Japanese to English. So, I've understood the website info quite Ok.

I'm from Australia and very interested in the Japanese cultures. I had a great time and a memorable 2-week- holiday in Japan in 2005. Hopefully, I'll have the chance to go back there one day.

By the way, your English is pretty good! :)

Again, thanks heaps, minami1983.

2)If Q1 is OK, Could you follow about his Questions/Order/Shipping etc by only email?
3)If Q2 is No, Could you deal with him in your factory directly?

Yesterday I got answers.

1.We can understand English mail a little, but please translate to send if possible.
2.You can offer to us only email, and you need a plan, drawing, measure numbers.
3.Welcome if you coming! Very good way to make your own products when you visit to our factory.

In the past, we have been receptive to Danish people, and we export products to foreign countries.

So I think you need good translator and CAD design or visit to Japan.

Hi minami1983,
Sorry for my late reply. I was not able to access my internet in the last few days.

Thank you for those info from the furniture company. When the time comes to build my new house and to furnish it, it will contact the company. May be then, I'll need a Japanese translator, I might have to seek your help also :)

Thank you very much for all your help, minami1983.

Best regards!
