Ryuyo Grand Piano Factory
Making Kawai the sound heard around the world was our vision, but making Kawai the sound preferred around the world is our ultimate goal. – Shigeru Kawai
Though Kawai's size and production grew steadily, Shigeru Kawai never wavered from his father's overriding concern for quality and ever-improving piano performance. It was this unceasing desire to perfect the art of the piano that inspired Shigeru's crowning achievement... the Ryuyo Grand Piano Facility. Opening in 1980, the 300,000 square-foot plant was built at a cost of $50 million.
Ryuyo embodies the perfect "marriage" of hand-craftsmanship and advanced technology.
