About OKURA

Okura, BLUE BLUE JAPAN'S flagship store opened in the year 1993, in Daikanyama Tokyo. "Okura" means "store house". We pictured a traditional Japanese store house full of antiques and treasures in our minds when building this shop.

We started off with spending every weekends on beaches picking up sea shells, drift woods and empty bottles to fill our Okura with.

After doing a year of that, Okura was filled with Nature-made treasures, that are as beautiful as jewels.

We spent another year decorating the shop with those treasures we picked up on the beaches.

The shop is filled with items of natural materials and natural dyes that are related with traditional Japanese aesthetics and the beautiful four seasons of Japan.

Today, you can still see the candle we have been repeating lighting and adding wax to every single day since we opened the shop.
