 創業30年のカラオケ店を夫婦で経営しています。2019年に妻・ナオコが実兄から店を継ぐ話が持ちあがったころ、私はVisual Systemsという自分のIT会社経営に忙しく、彼女には店の経営は無理だと思っていました。





 手にマメができるほど掃除し、感染防止対策をこまめに行いながら、Dojo RITAHメンバーの工務店やハンディマンの力を借り一部屋ずつ改装。店の空気が清浄され部屋もきれいになると、より多くのお客さまに喜んでほしくなり、サービスにも力が入りました。



We want to provide more spaces where everyone can gather casually and enjoy karaoke with peace of mind

◎ Amid lockdown, embark on the family business in the karaoke store

My wife Naoko and I run a karaoke store that has been in business for 30 years. In 2019, when Naoko talked about taking over the store from her brother, I was so busy with my own IT business called Visual Systems that I thought she couldn’t run the store. 

However, my wife’s strong desire to not lose the place for customers who have been coming for more than 20 years moved me, and I decided to help her. 

I got serious about the co-management when I saw a vagrant building a hut in front of the store and living there while closing the store due to Hawaii’s lockdown in 2020. It reminded me of Dr. Kazuo Inamori’s words: “When you think it’s time to give up, the real work begins.” I decided to join the board of Toma.

◎ Thorough cleaning and creative renovation to restore business performance

Since then, days have been filled with managing my IT company in the daytime and working at Toma from evening to midnight. I took some episodes from Dr. Inamori’s lecture as our models, i.e., if everyone cleans a dirty factory, the workplace will be revitalized, and business performance will recover. Another model is an efficient upgrade. We outsourced only partial renovations in dilapidated facilities and added ingenuity ourselves. 

I’ve got a blister due to everyday cleaning and infection prevention. Each karaoke room is renovated with the help of Dojo RITAH (DR) members, including construction and handyman companies. When the air in the store was purified, and the rooms became clean, we wanted more customers to be happy. We put more effort into the services.

Thanks to DR’s RITAHxPDCA activities, daily business results can be seen numerically. And both sales and profits have increased by more than 30% compared to before Corona. It boosted the morale of the workplace, too.

We will continue to value our customers and increase spaces where seniors and young people in Hawaii can enjoy karaoke parties at ease.
