Aichiya Butsudan Honpo takes pride in holding the top-class production volume and market share of Butsudan in the Mikawa region by ensuring the use of highest levels of technology alongside a team of traditional craftsmen, exercising the utmost care in selecting materials, and developing new products.

Buddhist family altars play a central role in the Japanese family. Aichiya Butsudan Honpo and its staff build Buddhist family altars with the deep understanding that these altars must reflect various family feelings.

In recent years, however, the necessity and needs of Buddhist family altars have and continue to change greatly due to changes in lifestyle and in attitude toward faith and the chanting of mass. Aichiya Butsudan Honpo actively promotes product planning/development and provides fine Buddhist family altars in order to meet consumer needs, as well as preserving traditional styles and carpentry techniques.
