We offer authentic 'made in JAPAN' goods that allow you to truly feel the essence of Japanese tradition. By showcasing unique patterns, colors, and meticulous craftsmanship that are distinctively Japanese, we aim to spread Japan's traditional culture to the world. These are items that go beyond mere experiences and we encourage you to take a piece of this distinctive culture back to your own country.
You will have the opportunity to 'appreciate' Japanese traditional dance and music featuring traditional instruments. The dance performances and unique sounds and melodies of these instruments reflect Japan's aesthetic sensibilities and cultural background, allowing you to experience the richness of the Japanese heart and soul.
Japanese 'OMOTENASHI' embodies the essence of thoughtfulness and consideration, stemming from the modesty inherent in the Japanese culture. Learning Japan's unique manners is also a way to understand the spirit of harmony. We will introduce you to the distinctive customs and etiquette that are specific to each location, providing insights into the heart of Japan.
