My home town; Yamanashi. Let's cherish Yamanashi!
I am more than happy to make Yamanashi more livable by:
*helping create a safe, happy and comfortable life for people in Yamanashi
*showing locally produced world class art and allowing people anywhere to purchase them (connecting crafts people and users).
*stimulating the local economy as a result of our customers coming from all over Japan and the world.
*letting people being proud of having my shop "The World's Best Japanese Crafts and Arts HOSAKA" in Yamanashi.
*Introducing local artists and their art work and supporting them
*Contributing to the culture in Yamanashi; my grandfather has done this through literature, my father through art and myself through the desire to spread Japanese craftsmanship
In our shop we are particularly focused on the issue of "true original".
Why? It is because of the following reasons:
Encountering authentic products could change your life.
Unless you experience an authentic quality product, you cannot understand the difference between authentic products and those that are not. Authentic products led me to a very good direction in life, which changed my life and now I feel happy every day.
Every day is fun using authentic products
Using and being surrounded by the real thing makes you feel happy and enjoy every day.
Authentic quality products are enjoyable to use.
Using our "exciting kitchen knife" makes you feel "cooking is fun", and using our "magic broom" makes you feel "cleaning is fun ",
And when you use "real lacquer ware", you feel that "washing dishes is fun".
Authentic quality products can impress all of us a lot.
We have received comments from our customers how much they are impressed after having used our products such as knives, brooms, fireworks, lacquerware and glass artwork.
Authentic products can make your life happy one.
You would be happy feeling fun and being impressed. That is why I feel very happy.
Finally I would like to tell you one more thing;
that is you can find treasures at your feet.
What makes me frustrated is the fact that so many people do not know we do have such great products in Japan. I just want to let people know about the wonderful products here.
Even millionaires are not able to buy these great products unless they get to know about them. That's why encountering these products is so important.While we have worked for 33 years, more than a thousand times we have heard these comments from our customers; "We should have come to this shop sooner", "We should have bought it at this shop", "We did not know there were such great products".
I hope more people get to know about Japan's treasure (The World's Best Japanese Crafts and Arts" to make their life a happy one.
