- For landscapes to be treasured for a thousand years.
- Lovingly looking to a blueprint of Japan, we connect dots in the past and present to those in the future. Then, we seek to imagine a picture of Japan which we will be proud of in the distant future, even in a thousand years’ time.
Our aim is to produce such a unique landscape one by one, which will continue to captivate your heart. We call our attempt One Thousandth Action.
People are breathing. People are living their lives.
A new structure has come into being, resulting from an architect’s act of dotting and drawing lines on a blank sheet of paper. Two structures will never be built alike.
The same holds true for landscapes. As people are strolling and chatting, a breeze blows and a ray of light shines on a place. All of which will breathe life into the area; cultivating a one-of-a-kind culture unique to the town.
However, what’s been happening with the present vistas in Japan? Some areas have long cherished their own local characteristics. Whereas predictable, cut-and-dry landscapes seem to be increasingly rife, making us feel a sense of emptiness and restlessness.
We at Senbunnoichi, meaning one thousandth, have taken action to preserve the past heritage, protect the present scenery and produce future landscapes. With an unconventional spirit, we extend our affection to every corner of our communities to create new values. Hoping that a prosperous Japan boasting an abundance of beautiful treasure will still live on even into the next millennium.
