■ Initiative background
Omotenashi Selection is an award established in 2015 with the purpose of discovering products and services that are full of Japan’s excellent hospitality and disseminating them to the world. An in-kind examination is conducted by an expert in overseas distribution who lives in Japan, and products and services that are deemed to be “overflowing with uniquely Japanese charm that we want to share with the world” are recognized as Omotenashi Selection Award-winning products and services.
We have decided to open “Little Japan,” a store where foreign visitors to Japan who are interested in Japan can experience and sell services and products that won the Omotenashi Selection. We aim to be a store that introduces Japanese craftsmanship to the world and incorporates it into modern lifestyles.
