We provide and grow something
that will be loved throughout the ages

The Japanese word “KABUKU” comes from “kabuki”. Kabuki is said to have originated in the early 17th century when it was first performed by the dancer Izumo-no-Okuni with the most unique costume and staging and it has became one of Japanese traditional arts today. Thus “KABUKU” took root to describe a cutting edge looking and behavior with the power to bring in a new era. We believe to “KABUKU” is to discover and create new values and to foster them as a sophisticated culture. We, as a group of “KABUKU”, will create something new that the world has never seen before and that will be loved throughout the ages.

What we do

We create products and services about digital fabrications which are highly designed to suit with new hardware, new software and industrial design. We also research latest technologies about digital fabrications and diffuse them.
