Specializing in Japanese Design and Japanese Construction


Ki Arts offers Japanese style interiors, entrance gates, garden structures, and fine furniture designed and crafted by Japanese master carpenter, Hiroshi Sakaguchi. Located in northern California, Ki Arts has had many years experience adapting Japanese design to Western needs. This family-run business was started in 1985 by Sakaguchi-san and his wife, Ann Gerber Sakaguchi. Ki, pronounced “key,” means “wood” in Japanese.

Since Japanese construction is a post and beam system held together by an intricate system of joinery, the components for Japanese style interiors and garden structures are “pre-fabbed” by Sakaguchi-san at his Ki Arts workshop. They are then transported to the building site. This enables him to do Japanese carpentry anywhere in the world. Custom designed  fine furniture is made by him at the Ki Arts workshop and can be shipped to any location.

The Ki Arts workshop is in pastoral Sonoma County, California. On a ridge near the Pacific Ocean and the Russian River, it’s an hour and fifteen minutes drive north of San Francisco.
