Creation of Comfortable Spaces That Everyone Can Enjoy.



History Museum

Take a look back at the history of Kotobuki Seating, first founded in 1914, as shown through representative pieces from each era. You can see older seats which are unique to the eras when they were designed, and quite different from modern pieces.

Kotobuki Seating’s progress over more than 100 years

Kotobuki Seating produced the first connected seats in Japan. The seats of Yasuda Auditorium in The University of Tokyo and Suntory Hall, which are epoch-making facilities that play an essential role in the history of public halls in Japan, are displayed.

Benches at stations in Japan that everybody has sat in at least once, a replica of the face of the Tower of the Sun from Osaka Expo, which is a symbol of Japan’s period of high-level economic growth, and various rare items that cannot be seen in other museums are all displayed.
