"Spinning to the future, products that resonate with the five senses"
MiN is an Out Door & In Door camp brand made by furniture craftsmen in Nara Oku Yamato, made from Nara trees such as Yoshino cedar and cypress.
The healing, warmth, and beauty that you can feel from the wood will fit into our daily lives because it is a material that has a life. In Japan, the value of such trees has been valued for a long time.
Because it is a modern society that pursues convenience, please stop and think about it.
The mainstream camping equipment is aluminum, titanium, and imported wood.
In Japan, where two-thirds of the land is forested, the demand for domestic timber is declining and the forests are devastated.
Even if trees are grown, they cannot be sold, so maintenance is delayed and the number of forests that need maintenance continues to increase, creating a vicious cycle.
Many people think that logging is a bad thing, but it's a big misunderstanding.
Japanese plantations are required to be cut down and used more.
If the planted trees are left uncut, the trunks and roots will not grow sufficiently and undergrowth will not grow easily.
The ability to protect the soil in the forest is impaired, increasing the risk of disasters such as landslides in the event of heavy rain.
In order for the forest to fully function, it is necessary to have a cycle of logging, using it, and planting new seedlings.
The vitality of the forest also helps to protect the lives and livelihoods of all wild animals, from insects to mammals.
It also leads to the healthy protection of our lives and livelihoods.
Prevention of global warming due to the absorption of carbon dioxide by trees, the function of storing abundant water sources, prevention of floods and sediment-related disasters, etc.
The benefits that forests bring to us vary.
We will protect the forests of Japan and realize a sustainable society by delivering "MiN" products that spin the future and resonate with the five senses to everyone who respects nature.

Just aiming for a product that is selected as "I want this"
MURAO is producing products aiming at products that are simply selected as "I want this".
Make something that you think is cool. That's why all MURAO furniture is what you want.
Regardless of the difficulty of the technology, the background of manufacturing, and the idea of the creator , I believe that
what is really needed is what you can see, touch, and like just the product, and work on design and production.
Please enjoy it as a taste unique to real wood.
-Since it is made of solid natural wood and processed by hand, the grain, weight, and shape of each piece are different. In particular, the shape is randomly cut, so there are individual differences.
-Since coloring is also done by hand, there may be uneven coating, but as you use it, the taste will change and the texture will become better. I would appreciate your understanding.
-When coloring, pinholes (needle holes) can be created in a part of the building blocks. Please note.
・ The appearance of colors and materials may differ from the actual product. Please note.
