We appreciate the support of our shareholders and through our shareholder gift tradition we hope many shareholders will, continue to support our company and hold our company's shares over the medium to long term.
The purpose of these gifts is to help shareholders understand the unique characteristics of our company, encourage more widespread use of wood products, and improve the name recognition of Tokyo Mokkoujou Arts & Crafts Furnishings in society.
Description Tokyo Mokkoujou Arts & Crafts Furnishings
Tokyo Mokkoujou Arts & Crafts Furnishings, is part of Shimizu Corporation. We design and produce interior trim, furniture, décor and other fine products made of wood. Our team of highly experienced woodworkers pass on the woodworking skills, deep knowledge, and techniques that Shimizu has cultivated over its long history.

We are proud of their superb craftsmanship skills.
Enhancement to our Shareholder Gift Tradition
To enhance our shareholder gift tradition and encourage more shareholders to continue to hold our shares, we are introducing an option system that will allow shareholders to choose whether to receive an item made of wood (one item from the menu of shareholder gifts based on the number of shares held) or to give financial donation to an organization that engages in activities that make a contribution to society. This ongoing system will be implemented for gifts beginning in the fiscal year ending March 2019.
Shareholders who hold 1,000 or more shares and are registered or recorded on the shareholder roster as of March 31 are eligible.
