RFtecnica Co., Ltd.
A dive into sales after graduating from Nippon Physical Education University
RFtecnica was founded in 2004 and has celebrated its 13th anniversary this year. Its main business is a wide range of construction-related works such as construction contracting, engineer dispatch, job placement, architectural design, facility design, drawing construction blueprints and construction management contracting. RFtecnica also focuses on engineer outsourcing.
You would expect that president Miyahara himself has a background in industry, but he graduated from Nihon Sport Science University, where he trained to be a kendo teacher. It can be said that he is a manager with a wide range of skills.
“I started kendo with the help of my esteemed father and was deeply impressed with the teachings of Tanaka Hiroyasu sensei during my high school days. I spent most of my high school life doing kendo before entering Nihon Physical Education University. I wouldn’t be the man I am today without my father and Tanaka sensei. However, when I came to university, I was stunned by the level difference in kendo. There were a lot of senpai and classmates who were active in the Inter High and Gyokuryuki tournaments and I kept being amazed by the high level of technique and approach. I managed to continue for 4 years, but honestly my passion for kendo faded.”
