Mimoto's products are chosen because they are the best of contemporary Japanese design and craftsmanship. Mimoto curates its products to showcase Japan's extraordinarily developed design intelligence and integrity, and also Japan's quirky sense of design humour.
We have sourced items from individual creators, small producers, designers and artists from across Japan, all of whom who have a unique design story to tell.
A new and exciting design tale is unfolding right now in Japan, with a gentle and reverent nod toward the rich traditions of Japanese traditional crafts and design.
Whether you are searching for an authentic glazed Japanese ceramic, a hand-forged brass bottle opener, fragrant Japanese incense used in Shinto and Buddhist temples, quirky Japanese stationery, quality linen and much more, you can find it here at Mimoto.
New products will be added frequently as we discover new and emerging Japanese creators and design trends.
We will also bring you some insights and musings on distinctly "Japanese" culture and happenings, and travel and shopping experiences and hints!
