Here and now

Jez and Hiromi now regularly travel to Japan to meet up (usually over a superb Japanese meal!) with a range of extremely talented craftspeople who have become friends as well as suppliers. They continue to seek out high quality, interesting and unusual authentic Japanese arts and crafts; after all, not many places stock furoshiki, mizuhiki and tenugui! Recent additions also include Japanese kitchen knives, contemporary art, lacquerware, folding fans and stunning Japanese tableware.

In Japan you will also experience a level of customer service which will unquestionably rank amongst the best in the world. Whether you are shopping in one of the many high class brand stores or enjoying a delicious snack in a small family run cafe, the level of service provided by immaculately presented and warm welcoming staff is almost always efficient, polite and friendly. This, together with their love of Japan has inspired them in their mission to offer you; The most beautiful Japanese gifts, the most stylish presentation and a first class level of service.
