Hi, my name is Toshi Sekiya, the founder and owner of Syosaku-Japan.

I was a Research and Development Manager for a Japanese company that developed materials for the graphic arts industry for more than ten years. In this role, producing photography, magazines, and billboards, I began to develop my aesthetic eye.

After being promoted to a senior management position, I was transferred to the Netherlands where I spent the next 11 years traveling and immersing myself in European culture. Throughout my travels around Europe, to museums and cultural landmarks, I was especially fascinated with European paintings and tableware.

Upon returning to Japan, I rediscover the beauty in my home country and in tableware handcrafted by master Japanese Artisans. Wanting to spread the Japanese masterpieces globally, I created my own brand in 2017, Syosaku.

After examining the craftsmanship produced by Japanese artisans, I decided to partner with local groups from particular regions of Japan that produce the most beautiful and functional handcrafted tableware I could, Urushi glass plates and handcrafted kitchen knives.

Please enjoy the beauty from Japan with the highest quality.
