Our thoughts

The technique of sheet metal craftsmen, which is described as “skilled”, is not something that can be acquired overnight.
Over the years, it is cultivated just as the metal is sharpened.

But before the technology declines,
The current situation is that older sheet metal craftsmen are forced to leave the workplace.

On the roof, where there is always the danger of falling
In the summer, the temperature exceeds 50 degrees in direct sunlight,
In winter, it is not uncommon to see below freezing.
Working in such an environment is too demanding for older craftsmen.

For veteran sheet metal craftsmen with excellent technology that young people are far from
I want you to keep shining for a long time.
With that thought in mind, Wakoku Shoten started its activities.

All the items introduced here
It is a handicraft of a sheet metal craftsman who is proud of his skill.
