Inudono (Dog Palace) is an elegant and luxurious abode for humanity's best friend, breaking the stereotype of kennels being crude dog houses. Traditional Japanese shrine and temple architecture is composed of graceful roof curves, intricate braiding, and detailed carvings, all created by the advanced skills of temple carpenters. It is the crystallization of the traditional beauty of Japanese architecture. The Inudono Project uses this beautiful architecture to create the finest kennels no one has ever seen.
Features of Inudono
Inudono is based on the Zen Buddhism style, which is one of the several styles in shrine and temple architecture.
Zen Buddhism was introduced from China during the Kamakura period.
Inudono is designed to be large enough to accommodate medium-sized dogs such as Shiba Inu.

Ordering and construction
Every Inudono is made individually to order. Please place your order after viewing the photos and videos available on our website, or visiting us to see a sample. Once a contract has been concluded we order the materials and start production. Each Inudono is meticulously crafted individually by temple and shrine carpenters and coppersmiths. As these craftspeople work on the Inudono while continuing their work of newly constructing and restoring temples and shrines, only one Inudono can be produced each year.
