A Small, Independent Shop Selling Aesthetic Tableware

It is no surprise that multi-brand shops these days display clothing together with food or tableware. That’s simply because today we all are interested in bringing quality products into our daily lives.

‘I have selected a wide range of tableware, as each customer has his or her own lifestyle’, says the store owner Mr Joji Sekine. Established in 2015, the ceramics specialist has a great selection of different kinds of items. ‘When thinking about a menu, it would be more fun with a nice dish’, Mr Sekine smiles. And what he says is true—the products showcased here are so unique that they inspire our creativity.

Another good thing is that the shop offers the items at a customer-friendly price. If you are looking for an affordable, but original pieces of ceramic dining ware, this shop should be your stop.
