We wasted no time becoming involved in the direct management of various nursing care and welfare facilities in 1993, before the elderly care insurance system went into effect.
We have developed three Misawa Homes brands for commercial complexes, rental housing, and other buildings we develop: ASMACI, ASMACI MAISON, and ASPRIME. We engage in future-oriented community building to help communities resolve their distinct issues.
It is said that the Japanese word for “home” originally used the same character as the Japanese word for “nest.” Just as birds build their nests to nurture their chicks, we believe homes should be built for children.
Homebuilding is future building. We believe this to be true, especially because we must care for children—our future.
We leverage our more than 25 years of experience directly managing nursing care facilities to provide total support based on our abundant expertise, from business consulting to the realization of optimal construction design.
