Through life long learning, world travel and a never-ending passion to please the customer and produce the best homes for the best price, our President, Junichi Koike, has developed his own unique sense of style. This style is displayed in every project he works on. He believes a home is a big part of ones life. Therefore, it is very important to design and build a home that will influence the occupants’ life in a positive manner.

Home Papa Homes has built over 200 homes for families and young couples. Each home is treated with passion, effort and care, in order to provide a home that offers a relaxing and cozy atmosphere. When we receive comments from our customers like, “Thank you for listening to our requests and building a house, which my family can enjoy. The comfortable living space always brings a smile to our faces”, we move forward with a fullness of heart. We will continue to build houses that create homes full of smiles.

Tomoko Kawakami - Interior Designer
Tomoko believes that interior designer’s job is to understand the customer’s image and make it into reality. The process of which is not simple or quick. It takes repeated meetings and conversations with the customer and through a trial-and error basis, together finalize the design. Making a home is major life event and should end with all participants smiling and appreciative of the process and more so, the outcome.
