The Japanese Shop welcomes you to its new showroom, which is just one mile from the centre of Harrogate. The company looks after wholesale customers across Europe, as well as the UK and recently welcomed customers from Spain who flew in especially.
Japanese Kokeshi Dolls were originally crafted by farmers in northern Japan as toys for their children and grandchildren, but are now recognised as traditional Japanese folk art. The award-winning authentic Japanese Kokeshi Dolls from The Japanese Shop are still largely hand-made from cherry or mizuki trees using traditional methods, and usually feature girls' faces and gorgeous floral designs. Every doll is given its own name by the craftsman who lovingly created it, ensuring that every Kokeshi Doll radiates its own individual spirit. With approximately 100 different Kokeshi Dolls to choose from, The Japanese Shop has one of the best collections outside Japan.
The Japanese Shop offers a superb collection of authentic Japanese Kimonos in silk, cotton and polyester to relax in at home or on holiday. All Kimonos are hand-finished by specialist craftsmen, come in just three simple size options and are ideal gifts for men and women.

• The Gold Lucky Cat brings you riches.
• A Lucky Cat raising its left hand invites customers to a business.
