How did Tokyo Smart start?
Tokyo Smart Started in 2010 with a French-Japanese, living near Nagoya in Aichi prefecture.
Their online adventure started when they were living in Naha (Okinawa, Japan). At the time they had a first online shop specialized in products from Okinawa (food, glassware...).
Back to Aichi prefecture they decided to open a new online shop and started to look for new ideas. During the few previous years they got emails from friends who were looking for Japanese decoration objects which were quality items made in Japan. At the time there were many online shops selling Japanese products but only a few of them and even none were selling Japanese decoration items which were original, top quality and guaranty made in Japan. This is how the idea of Tokyo Smart was born.
After months of products research, website developing and testing, the shop went on line on the 2nd of August 2010.
Since december 2013, it's a new French-Japanese team, installed in Tokyo and sharing the same love for Japanese hand craft, who are in charge of Tokyo Smart.
Since then, we travel the different prefectures looking for new beautiful Japanese arts and crafts.
In order to make sure of the quality of all our articles, we meet many makers and craftsmen before making a decision.
