EKO House of Japanese Culture

An important key to understanding Mitutoyo's company philosophy is the EKO house donated by company founder Yehan Numata. It is a place to make the acquaintance of the essential elements of Japanese culture directly: buildings and gardens, culture and religions.


A Buddhist temple and the beautiful ambiance of the gardens in Japanese style form the center point of the EKO House of Japanese Culture in Düsseldorf-Niederkasse near the European Mitutoyo headquarters. Affiliated to the temple are exhibition and seminar rooms where various courses for concerts, films, readings, and especially Japanese dances or "Ikebana" are performed.


The EKO-house is also a place for meetings between the Far East and the West.
