About Kawashimaya


KAWASHIMAYA The Japan Store is an online store established since November 2011 to cater high quality authentic Japanese products, such as Japanese foods, traditional kitchen wares and tablewares locally and globally.

At KAWASHIMAYA, food products are made without the use of any chemical substance. Due to that, the availability of products are limited as they cannot be mass-produced. However, you can rest assured that all products are made with diligence, passion and excellence from our partners. Our goal is to deliver only high-quality products to our dear customers.

Currently, we partnered with over 150 professional craftsmen, 200 farmers, and 50 food and kitchenware manufacturing companies from all across Japan to innovate and develop our products. We are planning to further expand partnerships with many more companies throughout the world. (If you are interested in joining our business partnership, please refer to this page)

Our company witnessed accelerated growth from only six products in the beginning to now hosting more than 700 types of products. The customer base of KAWASHIMAYA is represented by over 150,000 customers in Japan, and the numbers continue to grow.

Now with our newly rolled out global website, first launched in 2018, everyone can access authentic Japanese products from the comfort of their home.
