About Us

At Morihata International, we believe in lifestyle goods that are crafted with intention. Established in 2005 by husband-and-wife team Kaz and Yuka Morihata, Morihata Intl. is dedicated to finding and distributing the highest quality Japanese design products to a new international audience. Every year our founders travel home to select thoughtful collections that express the innate quality, craftsmanship, and tactile sensibility of modern Japanese aesthetics. 

Concept | コンセプト

Morihata represents several designers and collections and is, in most cases, their exclusive American distributor. Our purpose is to make their innovative home, kitchen and lifestyle goods available beyond Japanese borders, and in that way connect Japanese artistry with the rest of the world. 

日本の気候風土から生み出された伝統的な素材や技術を、今の生活に添う新しいカタチにして提案されたもの・・・。
そんな魅力あふれる日本を海を渡った次の世代にも贈っていきたいという思いを込め、 Morihataは活動を続けます。
「日本の優れた文化 / アート / デザイン/ ライフスタイル」をコンセプトに集められたMorihataセレクトの数々は、これまで全米・各国のメディアに数多く取り上げられ、ライフスタイルショップ、ミュージアムショップ,アートギャラリーへと幅広く紹介されています。
