Shimadzu Ltd. is a family company that administers the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Sengan-en and Shoko Shuseikan Museum in Kagoshima Prefecture. The complex includes a beautifully preserved historic house and gardens, a museum, four restaurants, a number of shops, and a glassworks.

Shimadzu Ltd. asked Custom Media to redesign the website for Sengan-en and restaurants’ menus.

They also wanted a website that could later be expanded with additional languages, e-commerce functionality, and social media features.
