Visitors to the museum can view exhibits detailing the life and achievements of Nobuo Ishibashi, the founder of Daiwa House Industry, a pioneer of the prefabricated housing industry who died at the age of 81 after making numerous contributions to improving the standards of living of the Japanese public. Mr. Ishibashi nurtured in his breast a dream in which Japanese society would make major advances, and as a step toward this goal he became a standard-bearer for the industrialization of construction. We believe the material presented in this museum will enable visitors to feel and understand for themselves Mr. Ishibashi's personality and his aspirations for the company he founded and for society as a whole.
