Japanese pearls are gaining popularity around the world thanks to their high quality and sophistication. The majority of Akoya Pearls in particular—with their outstanding beauty in a variety of colors such as white, pink, green and rose—are produced in Japan.

This is the first exhibition specialized in pearls held in Japan for overseas pearl buyers. We will present attractive products of South Sea Pearls, Black Pearls and Japanese Akoya Pearls collected by experienced Japanese pearl processors from producers around the world.

While travel to Japan was restricted due to the corona crisis from 2020, Japan’s border is now open. Please come by the venue in Kobe, where numerous pearl business professionals are waiting for you.
