A Happy New Year!

 Hello and Welcome to www.nipponcraft.com,

We wish you a happy and healthy new year for 2021!

2020 was an unprecedented year and was a tough year for all.

May 2021 bring you goodness and prosperity.

On January 2, I visited a local port town called "Chosi" which is approx. 140km east of Tokyo. In the town, the fishermen flew colorful flags on their fishing boats for the  celebration of the new year. So that the fishermen's dream will fly high in the sky. And ours!

Shipping through alternative method

Hello and Welcome to www.nipponcraft.com,

The postal service to many countries is now suspended due to the corona virus confusion. Therefore, as another option, we ship small items only like noren, tenugui, furoshiki or sensu fans with a small pack through DHL Express.
With this method, we can ship to:
-New Zealand

Once again, we can only ship a couple pieces of fabric items and fans so that you can receive under a reasonable cost.

I pray for your safe!

Thank you!

"Taru" sake barrels section added

Hello and Welcome to www.nipponcraft.com,

One of our customers once asked us to look for sake barrels for his sushi bar interior decoration. We could not find out barrel makers for a while, but finally reach to one of the makers in Hyogo Prefecture. When I visited a fair of traditional crafts, I heard that sake barrels are made only in Hyogo Prefecture, which became a clue of finding out! 

So, we have setup the section of "Taru" sake barrels for interior decoration:
These items will be produced and available on a customer's order.

Each barrel is approx. 40 cm across and 44 cm high. The weight is 2.3 kg. A real sake barrel for transporting liquor is made of cedar wood covered with woven straws for cushion, but the interior decoration mode is a mock-up made of polymers. Since the mock-ups are not so heavy, you can stack them up like the photo below.

We also have a very large model for floor stand display. The size of the large model is 56 cm across and 64 cm high, and the wight is 5 kg.

We have 8 designs for sale. The followings are some of them.

Thank you for visiting our blog!
