The Construction Industry In Japan

What sorts of structures come to mind when you think of construction in Japan?
Kansai International Airport, which was the world’s first marine airport entirely made up of an artificial island? Tokyo Bay Aqua-Line, which boasts the longest undersea road tunnel in the world? Perhaps the Honshu-Shikoku Bridge (including the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge), which boasts the longest bridge in the world?
Moreover, Japan’s seismic isolation and earthquake-resistant technology was clearly proved by the fact that high-rise buildings did not collapse at the time of the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011.
These achievements are the reason that Japan's construction technology is recognized internationally as pre-eminent in the world.

Japan is hit by large-scale natural disasters almost every year, with many locations suffering enormous damage. Last year saw the occurrence of the Kumamoto earthquake, the Chubu Earthquake in Tottori Prefecture, and an offshore earthquake in Fukushima Prefecture, as well as flooding throughout the country caused by typhoons and torrential rains. When disaster strikes, the Japanese construction industry carries out emergency reconstruction work, playing an important role in restoration and reconstruction.

The Construction Industry In Tokyo

At present, construction in Tokyo is busy, driven by the booming economy. Firstly, construction work for accommodation for the athletes competing in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games and the Paralympic Games commenced in January 2017. A total of 4,000 apartments in 21 buildings will be constructed by 2020 to serve as an athletes’ village, comprising a project area of approximately 18 hectares. In 2024, 23 buildings will be developed across 5 districts, totaling about 700,000 square meters, about 5650 houses, shops, nursery schools, nursing homes, etc., and a town with a planned school site will be born.
Tokyo’s outer ring road (Kan-Etsu Expressway—Tomei Expressway) is also scheduled for opening by 2020.
Furthermore, there are countless projects aiming at improving our disaster response capabilities and ensuring the safety of Tokyo residents, such as relocating utility poles underground, improving the fire resistance of urban areas with densely packed wooden buildings, and maintaining a wide-area underground adjustment reservoir as a countermeasure against concentrated heavy rainfall.
The power of construction is essential for improving convenience and supporting economic development.

Welcome Message

The construction industry can be broadly divided into two categories: The civil engineering industry and the building construction industry. The building construction industry is responsible for constructing buildings such as residential buildings, commercial buildings and factories.
On the other hand, the civil engineering industry is responsible for building public infrastructure such as roads and bridges, improving the water supply and sewerage services, and developing residential land. The Minato Civil Corporation is engaged in the civil engineering industry.

In Japan's construction system, general construction companies (general contractors) are commissioned by primary contractors to undertake civil engineering and construction work, with total control over establishment of planning design and construction planning, process management, and more.
Minato Civil is a local general contractor specializing in marine civil engineering works such as port construction.

We hope you too will grow together with us in Japan’s construction industry.
You are not simply a worker!
We welcome you as an engineer.
