Our owner Hayase introduces our traditional crafts or handmade products by visiting the producing areas or getting information from experts of certain crafts.


Since our collection is rare, our customers ask us that "where do you get it?" In fact, it depends on the products.


Some crafts were the products the owner found at the Japanese-style hotel (ex. flower vase Sorori of Nousaku.) Some products were served when she went to a restaurant. And she made a contact with the producer when she found the products at select shops.


Also, since the owner has studied design for a long time, she has multiple connections. Her friends and teachers introduces good products to her.


We have criteria for selecting the products.


First, "the first impression!" We sell daily use goods. Therefore, the intuition of "beautiful and soothing" is important.

Next, we purchase one of them and examine the products by ourselves.


Doesn't the product have too decorative designs so that users  hard to use?

Is it durable for long use?

Does the product have Japanese unique skill?

Does the product have stories?


We decide to have stock of the products after the products pass these criteria.

We only introduces the products we can be convinced.

Japanese manufacturing gathered in Tokyo

At the beginning of last February, we got a invitation for an exhibition in Tokyo.

Some of our supplier ateliers and makers gave us the invitation.

We visited our supplier and got information of new arrivals.

Today I would like to introduce the exhibitions of Japanese traditional crafts.

"Gift Show" and "Te-te-te trade fair"


We went the "Gift Show" at the Tokyo Big Sight and 12745619_1261424043874172_1068829396913584857_n "Te-te-te trade fair" held near the "Gift Show."

Wooden bowl is produced by hollowing out the lumber like this.
