Two locations, in Yokohama and Shonan
Operating in two locations: Yokohama and Shonan

Our headquarters in Yokohama is situated alongside the city’s scenic Ooka River, a popular destination for cherry-blossom viewing in the spring. The nearby Gumyoji Temple and its shopping arcade preserve the vibrancy of the neighborhood’s working-class heritage and sport a retro-modern feel that is popularly featured in current television programs and commercials.


Our Shonan Factory is nestled among the exquisite scenery of Yokohama’s Hirakata Bay. When the factory’s windows are open, its rooms are soon filled with the gentle aroma of the sea. Within walking distance are the seaside recreation areas Nojima Park and Marine Park.


Yanagida Engineering operates from these two locations, sending out excellent products for our customers’ utmost satisfaction.

Great Work Depends on Discerning Taste

A company’s selectivity in its processes and techniques has a profound effect upon the quality of end product and upon the prices that company can provide.

Even the same set of specifications can result in a wide range of cost and final product quality, depending on a handling company’s approach.


Are we operating efficiently? Is this the best method of production? Is this the best quality we can deliver? These are questions we constantly keep in mind to ensure we insist upon the best possible production process. We do so because we know this is the best possible service we can provide to our customers.

Our company motto of “The Creation of Quality Parts at Reasonable Prices” reflects this attitude we have toward work.


In our workplaces as well, we exercise discerning taste, insisting upon the best, without compromise. We believe providing a great working environment is critical to enabling our employees to deliver great work.
