Welcome and thank you for visiting our website.
The traditional Japanese art craft (kogei) items are the embodiment of the beauty and the brilliance, and are one of the finest art work treasures in the world. The creation comes from splendid Japanese master artist-craftsmen’s skills with use of superb local materials.

Regrettably, the use of the traditional Japanese art craft (kogei) items in daily life has declined over the years in Japan, due to the changes in our lifestyles and mass produced substituting items.

However, we sincerely believe that the value and the demand of the traditional Japanese art craft (kogei) items can be increased, with further developments and design innovations of the art craft to meet our lifestyles today. We are confident that it can be realized by maximizing modern Japanese aesthetic sense and sensitivity.

Our mission is to introduce traditional Japanese art craft (kogei) items to overseas customers, and to have those customers become fans of the Japanese beauty expressed in the true work of art.

Therefore, first we focus on the role of introduction, merchandising and the sales of the best quality traditional Japanese art craft (kogei) items to overseas customers and cultivate our fans.

And second, by proposing new designs and aesthetics of the traditional Japanese art craft (kogei) items, we will cultivate unforeseen customer needs and exceed expectations of those fans.
Further on, we would like to introduce aesthetically rich creations by uniting Japanese traditional master artist-craftsmen from various areas of work with inspiring designs, thereby overwhelming customers’ expectations.

Finally, Japan Kogei Styling’s goal is to contribute in the sustainable succession of the traditional Japanese art craft works to our children and the society as a whole and hand on the culture of the Japanese beauty, Kogei, the true creation from Japan.

We appreciate your understandings, your support and further expectation to us.
Thank you,
