I once had a dream of becoming a chef. That’s why I feel like
the world of mechanical designing is similar to the world of
cooking. If you are able to satisfy your customers, word
of mouth brings new customers. Some may appoint you to cook,
and you can even start your own restaurant using your skills.
In that sense, joining Design City Japan is joining for your
skills, rather than joining for the company.
This job is about having twice the joy.
What’s rewarding about this job is there is joy of
decision-making. You get to decide where to start to draw a
line on a blank sheet. Then come the decision of "what willthe
size of the bolt be, and how many willIuse", "what's the best

In order to make decisions, knowledge is necessary.
Knowledge on materials, mechanics, construction methods,
distribution methods, methods to prepare for earthquakes and
fire are only a few to start with. But nobody has full

doesn’t matter whether you’ve studied at humanities course or
at science course. Everything will be taught on the job.
However, the process is not easy. Like a cook learning how to
use a knife, the process may seem dull. But chances are
equally given to all. We will support you. We want to give you
that sense of achievement at the beginning of your career, no
matter how small the achievement may be. We know that such
experience will become your confidence to overcome the next
The important thing is to continue learning. Be curious about
everything. If you are capable of doing that, you will have
the chance to move the world. Because the world is made from
mechanical facilities that we design.
