Are you looking for an ideal traditional Japanese house to use as a villa?


We specialize in the construction and renovation of houses in the Shizuoka area that combine modern technology together with ‘KOMINKA’ (old Japanese-style houses more than 50 years old). My motivation for starting this business came when I noticed that these traditional and historically valuable Japanese dwellings were being sold without any consideration to their history.


KOMINKA are now becoming more popular with non-Japanese to use as holiday villas and retreats. The charm of KOMINKA is the comfortable living they offer, and which suits the distinct seasonal variations that are unique to Japan. Many of the materials used in the construction of these houses are natural as evidenced by the wooden pillars, clay walls, and tatami mats. They are designed to be cool and comfortable in the summertime using natural ventilation and often do not require air conditioning. The houses are made of materials with superior durability, and even though a property may be over 50 years old, they are still very livable.


WAKURASU renovates these KOMINKA in order to show case their special charm and features. Your preferences are also taken into account when we undertake the renovation, and if you require, insulation, a wood stove, or tatami flooring, can be incorporated into the renovation. Adding European or American décor and features to the KOMINKA’s original Japanese style is also possible. Finally, we carry out basic maintenance such as improving earthquake resistance and can provide insurance and other services related to maintaining a villa.     


If you are looking for an ideal second house in Shizuoka area, contact us and we help you find a perfect Japanese KOMINKA.                                   


Business Hours:8:30am~17:00pm, Monday through Friday
