Although Inada’s working life started at Hashimoto Tekkosho, a time-honored manufacturer, he chose a way toward independence during the Showa era, which featured the life-time employment system.
Although he did not have a particular business field in mind, he had a strong desire to become an independent businessman.
While being grateful to Hashimoto Tekkosho, where he could learn all the fundamentals of business, he set out on his own when he was 22 years old.
This coincided with the end of the summer of 1962.
A person who recognized and accepted his desire for independence was the president of Akamatsu Mokkosho, which was a supplier he had been in charge of before while employed at Hashimoto Tekkosho.
The president lent him a four-and-a-half mat room of his woodworking shop located in Tajima-cho, Ikuno-ku, Osaka, where he started business under the name of Inamasa Banno Kougeisha.
