Get access to one-of-a-kind ingredients from Japan.

We micro-source small batch, limited edition, hand harvested and hand curated artisans. We are connoisseurs of the unique, trekking to the smallest, most-remote villages, seeking one-of-a-kind ingredients never before available. The 2% of items we carry that are already available outside of Japan? Chefs tell us our quality is far superior.


Sustain the future of farmers and artisans.

Our farmers and artisans have as many as 160 years and 8 generations behind them; Each product you purchase not only supports these families and their businesses, but their incredible work, decades of expertise, and one-of-a-kind artistry – part of Japan's cultural heritage. Additionally, working directly with farms or artisans, allows us to pay them more.
