With her natural enthusiasm and caring nature, Maiko has a vast network of connections despite the fact that real estate tends to be a man’s sphere. In fact, she manages to use her perspective as a woman to her advantage to accurately assess customer needs. In her private life, she’s a vocalist for a jazz band, and she’s so good at it that it’s hard to tell which of these is her “real” job!Facebook

Hirochika works so hard every day and every night that his boss says his work is “his only interest.” His poker face may make him seem unfriendly, but in reality he deals with customers in the most sincere way. He can’t refuse an invitation—and he’s kind of the office clown. He’s busy taking care of his beloved son on a daily basis.Facebook
Ryuichi is known at Hachise for being a little bit of a mischievous character. At the same time, when it comes to architecture, he works twice as hard as everybody else. He’s particularly insightful on traditional architecture. According to both himself and other people, Ryuichi is not the best talker—which means he’s still “in training” in dealing with customers. Still, many customers are taken in by his personality anyway!Facebook

Raising children and doing her job at the same time, this mother of two is Hachise’s first working mother. Also an interior coordinator, she’s always garnering information on new products.

Media Design Department

Maki is the camera girl for Hachise. If there’s something she wants to capture with her camera, she steps out in a flash—we should all be more like her—with her favorite, the Nikon D5000.

For this reason she’s known both by people in the company and otherwise for her great Web design.
Noriko is extremely considerate of everybody and great at helping out. She takes on even challenging projects—and often suffers for it later.

She’s the company’s second working mother.
In contrast to the many older-sister types that we have at the company, Yoko is more like the younger sister, moving along at her own pace—but accurately and carefully.
