sakura forest factory

sakura forest factorySakura Forest FactoryStriving for further growth, as the cherry trees grow


As the needs of our customers continue to diversify, we are striving to further improve our manufacturing fundamentals of “quality, cost, and delivery”, and we have built a new factory in the lush natural area of Hachioji.
To improve productivity, we reviewed our manufacturing equipment layout and implemented significant improvements in our production processes. In addition, by introducing supply chain management, we have created a new production management system that further enhances our just-in-time production system. We aren't stopping at physical efficiency-we also want to further establish our identity as a mother factory.

If you look out at the scenery from the wooden deck on the fifth floor of the factory, you are surrounded by so much green that it looks like you're seeing an illusion of a factory in the middle of the forest. On clear days you can see as far as Mt. Fuji. We named it the Sakura Forest Factory to allude to the fact that paper products originate in the forest.
In addition, planted on the factory slope are nothing but yamazakura (mountain cherry trees) - 29 different varieties have been planted there, which is why we call it Yamazakura Hill. These cherry trees were primarily donated by the Takarakuji Sakura Distribution Project, which is run by the Japan Cherry Blossom Association. There are many rare varieties, and you can admire them when there are in full bloom in the spring.

Yaebeni shidarezakura symbolic tree

The cherry tree planted in front of the factory is a Yaebeni shidarezakura, a cultivated variety that is a cross between the edohigan (prunus pendula) variety and the yamazakura variety.
This tree comes from a seed that was collected in 1943 from the shrine garden of the Heian Shine, which was built to commemorate the millennium of the establishment of Heian-kyo (present-day Kyoto) as the capital. The tree is 65 years old as of 2009 and measures as high as 12 m. When the cherry trees are in full bloom, the red double-blossom shidarezakura is a sight to behold.

Not just a distribution center - the ever-evolving Sakura Cube


As our customers have demanded faster and faster delivery, we built a distribution center in Shinkiba to speed up and streamline our distribution system.
This center is not just a distribution center; it is a symbol of our responsiveness to our customers’ needs and our further growth as a company. Sakura Cube is not limited to simply being a workplace; it is a place where people can exchange information and interact socially – a place of corporate creativity that represents Yamazakura’s identity. It aspires to be a space where creativity never stops and growth is always ongoing.

Come visit our museum.
The Yamazakura showroom has been designated a
“modest-scale museum.”

Our showroom, called Sakura Terrace, was recognized as the “Business Card and Paper Product Museum” as part of the Sumida 3M Movement. Inside you will find a permanent exhibition introducing you to various topics related to the history of Japanese business cards, and you can learn some interesting facts about them. Three times a year, there are design exhibitions where you can see displays not just about business cards, but also about cherry trees, Japanese paper and various paper products. Talks related to the exhibitions are also given. Please come for a visit!
