Foo Tokyo Japan

MISSION

We create a global brand based in Japan.
Using meticulous production methods and materials, we strive to provide quality fitting for a brand loved by people around the world.
We develop our products so that consumers are pleasantly surprised each time they encounter them.

MESSAGE

During our time living abroad, we would always somehow feel proud whenever we saw a Japanese brand in another country.
However, that brand strength seems to be gradually waning these days, and we feel a sense of urgency that unless something is done our country's excellence will no longer be communicated to people.
We want more people to know what a wonderful country Japan is.
With that idea in mind, we gathered experts from several fields and founded this company.

Omotenashi (hospitality), wabi-sabi (impermanent beauty), miyabi (elegance), iki (simple sophistication).
No country other than Japan has such widely sought after aesthetic sense, while at the same time being unconscious of that sense.
Technique and delicateness, safety and peace of mind, and the technology to express them all can be found in Japan, a country of monozukuri (making things).

We believe that a brand should be an anchor for people living in future generations.
We want to provide a favorite for people from around the world to rely on.
The owners and the creators of objects should feel the joys of owning and creating, respectively.
We have created a lifestyle brand which will be handed down to the next generation and make them want to inherit it.
