A typical Japanese-style room has wooden ceilings, tatami-mat floors, Japanese mud plaster walls, and sliding shoji screens. This space can multi-function as a living room, dining room, bedroom, meditation room. Hiroshi Sakaguchi also builds more specialized interiors such as tearooms, offices, kitchens, bathing rooms, and entrance rooms. Shoji screens for room separation and window shades are part of the construction as are doors and sliding glass windows. They can also be ordered separately from an interior construction. For general information about design, Japanese carpentry technique and construction procedures, commissioning an interior, and pricing, go to Process and Pricing.

"When I walk into the Japanese room Sakaguchi-san constructed in my home, I get in touch with my roots and feel transformed. I think Hiroshi Sakaguchi is a living treasure of Japanese classic carpentry. I want people to realize how valuable and precious his skill is."
