Shinken Press Ltd. publishes newspapers for constructors and many books of housing.

“Shinken” means “build something new”. The company was founded in 1945. The company published a house building journal in Nagano prefecture, middle part of Japan.

In 1995, when the Great Hanshin Earthquake hit the Kansai region, Mr.Kazuma Izawa (former head and owner of Shinken Press) took many workers, such as constructors in Nagano prefecture, to Kobe city where the disaster stricken area for helping victims.

At that time, Mr.Izawa made a new policy of the company “Change Japanese buildings and houses much stronger against disaster through our media”. He set up a new office in Tokyo, begun to publish new journals (newspapers and magazines) for home builders and constructors named “Shinken-Housing”. It is currentry one of our main media.

From the early 2000’s onwards, financial crisis plunged Japan into a deep and prolonged economic slump. Many companies and local governments had difficulties to construct new buildings or maintenance due to financial difficulties.

In 2007, Shinken Press published a new magazine called “Risk-taisaku.com” which focus on BCP, Disaster recovery and Risk finance.
