Who We Are

Rikumo is a lifestyle brand that celebrates Japanese craftsmanship, design, and aesthetics. Based in Philadelphia, we connect Japanese artisans and craftsmen with an international public that values quality, craftsmanship, and simplicity in design. Through our products we showcase a culture that is unique to Japan but also powers the modern, interconnected world.
Throughout the year, founders Kaz and Yuka Morihata travel to Japan to find local craftsmen and artisan collectives that exemplify traditional and contemporary Japanese aesthetics. By connecting ancient craft techniques with a modern international public, Rikumo aims to sustain the character and artistry of traditional craftsmanship.
