Maneki neko Ai Shop History
We are a select shop that deal in Japanese traditional products.
We started selling carefully selected Japanese products to all over the world through online shop since 2010.
We bigan from the idea that "we would like to deliver items that would be delighted to people who love Japanese traditional products all over the world”.
The store owner, Ai used to work for a British manufacturing company.
Many engineers repeated ingenuity to develop their own items and put them out to the world over the years there.
And he learned that they respect Japanese craftsmen and the depth of traditional culture
Ai grew up in a historic city near Kyoto and Nara since childhood.
She found the high value of the culture that he was touching as usual.
And Ai often went to the craft market with family who likes Japanese traditional handcraft from a young age, so nature and knowledge grew up.
Well designed Maneki neko Kutani yaki porcelain , the refreshing Kyoto Chimen crape and Yuzen pattern, the handy and cute Hina doll where the world is there.
