TAKUMI NEXT : Essence of Japan -Mastery Collection-


JETRO (Japan External Trade Organization) and METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry) launched the project "Takumi Next " to support Japanese craftsman to expand their markets abroad.

This project involves Japanese producers who excel at the art of creation utilizing the local resources such as crafts, traditional products, and household goods that will lead the next generation of Japan.

Their products present the highest quality mastery products made in Japan with strong background in traditional techniques and rich cultural context behind the works. Through the lens of these craftsmen, you can glimpse the inner workings of a nation, Japanese history and the industries that drive its economy and its vision for the future.
