Surrounded by land on all four sides, it has little external influence and is characterized by its unique natural environment and ecosystem. In addition, the Omura Bay area has mountains and rivers, and the production of agricultural products such as tea and citrus fruits, as well as livestock farming, are thriving.
The rich sea is nurtured along with the natural environment. “Acoya” jewelry is created by Mr. C & Daichi from Akoya pearls grown by Mr. Matsuda of Matsuda Pearl, a pearl farmer in Omura Bay. At acoya, we perceive pearls not as standardized, uniform industrial products, but as individual products of nature. I’m here.
