About

UGUiSU was started as an online store of carefully curated Japanese craft & design in July 2009 by Hikaru Komura who is also known as Hiki, with the intention of introducing pieces of her native Japan to the world.

All of our items are Japanese made and/or designed and have been carefully handpicked with the aim of showcasing quality Japanese craft & design, except the "via Tokyo" section where you can find beautifully designed and/or handcrafted items by designers and artists from all over the world which we started to curate for our Tokyo store we opened in 2012.

Every order is packed with good care and thoughts and shipped directly from Tokyo to all over the world, as long as there is postal service available, at relatively reasonable shipping rates.

 

This is a perfect place to find unique gift and zakka items especially for those who care for designs and quality as well as uniqueness. The store stocks an ever increasing number of items made by artisans and independent artists.

We hope you'll enjoy browsing our site and thank you for stopping by!

UGUISU is pronounced [ oo・goo・ee・sue ].
It’s the name of a Japanese bird that has an enchanting singing voice which is seen as a sign of the arrival of spring in Japan.

Our Little Shoppe opened in Tokyo in November 2012.
