Greetings from the President


Situated in the historic Yoshinoyama of Yoshino-ch? in Nara, our company has always appreciated the patronage of its customers as a manufacturer of Yoshino lumber.
My grandfather began our business in 1939 as ?tani Lumber and in 1950 my father began managing the business as ?tani Woodworking. I am now the third generation.
We have appreciated your business over the past 57 years and have done our best with each generation to satisfy our customer’s needs with high quality and low prices.
From this history, ?tani Ltd. was established on January 13th, 1995. On April 1st,1996 the company’s name was changed to ?tani Co., Ltd. and was reorganized as we move forward with lines of business that are suitable for operation as a lumber department store.
Our company was once focused on the production of basic construction materials but we have now begun to work in wood drying and processing for interior design.
We want to do our utmost in offering you quality wood products from the beautiful forests of Yoshino at a low price.
We hope to do business with you in the near future.
