YAQMO is about Japan.

We like to share information about Japanese people, culture, lifestyles and their craftsmanship in “Made in Japan” products with you. Artistry in Japanese products has unique characteristics, and we feel it is our role to introduce backgrounds and people behind such creations. We hope we can suggest to you some new perspectives to all things Japan, for aesthetic or for practical purposes.

We are placing our main focus on Japanese traditional arts and crafts. But our interest does not stop there. Instead, we see many of the techniques and concepts behind the modern Japanese products derived from the traditional works of the artisans, their spirits prevail even in the high tech products or pop cultures of today.

Our vision is to serve as a bridge between you and Japan and function as a gateway for all things made in Japan.
