Representative Director

Nice to meet you. I am Katsuyuki Nakagawa of Nakagawa Juken Corperation, a company based in Kameoka City, Kyoto Prefecture. I was born in Hidokoro, Yagi Town, Nantan City, Kyoto Prefecture, and spent my childhood living in a traditional Japanese house known as “Kominka.” It is through experiencing the charm, beauty, and deliciousness of rural life that I felt the potential of "social business." In 2015, when I became the representative, I aimed for a second founding, aspiring to make it a future core business.

While rural living has gained attention in recent years, dealing with rural real estate requires essential local information. The reason why major real estate companies cannot enter the market for traditional house transactions or rural living businesses is also related to this.

We believe that local companies should address local challenges. Our company aims to visualize the intrinsic richness overlooked in everyday life in rural areas and become a company that “solves local issues with a business approach."
