Company Profile


Nipponcraft.com is owned and managed by Japaning Corporation, an e-commerce company founded in 2010 by Ken Yoshimura, the CEO of the company.

Our aim is to introduce Japan’s modest but yet elegant cultural products to homes, offices and business establishments outside Japan, by providing authentic traditional handcrafts. Visiting our website, you will find the diversity of our products, many of which are produced by well-skilled artisans from various parts of Japan.

We guarantee that all of our products are made in Japan.


The prevalence of the Internet and airline travel has brought the world closer together. In this era of globalization, willingness to respect and learn from other nations’ cultures is a key factor towards achieving more understanding. Adopting aspects of other cultures also adds flavor to everyday life.

Japan has a long history and has been creating various products for daily livings. Often, these products are unique, delicate but not opulent. Many of Japanese crafts have utilitarian and aesthetic purpose together. In every piece we bring to you, you will touch the emotion of the artist who created it, and a sense of tranquility, joy and vibrancy will be evoked in the choice of colors and designs.

Japaning Corporation provides information about Japanese culture to the world to promote international understanding and add flavor to everyday life.
