Know who we are and the reasons that brought this site to life
Clothing from Japan —this site we wish you can enjoy, was created and is currently run by two admins, Cristina —who goes by the nickname of Sakura-san or plainly Sakura since she was a child— and Daniel —mainly known as Dan-kun or sometimes Daniel-san on the site.
We are an international couple currently living in Europe.
Even if we are not Japanese ourselves, we have developed deep bonds with Japan from a love for its culture, and specially, from the friendship we share with some of the most wonderful Japanese and Japan-related people since we were very young.
On the maintaining of this site, we are also helped by some dear friends who share our passion for Japanese clothing and who occasionally decide to share their passion and knowledge with us so we can have more insight at the time of writing articles on those themes that we all love. To them and to all those who support us, we want to give our dearest thanks!
So, why would we create this site?
Clothing from Japan was born because we know there is an interest to know more about Japanese fashion and enjoy Japanese clothes in many regions around the world. This is an interest we also share, so we were already spending time looking for beautiful items on Japanese clothing before the idea of creating this site even sprouted.
We usually relaxed reading about and enjoying Japanese fashion as we did with other aspects of Japanese culture that we also love.
On those times, though, we started to notice that Japanese clothing seemed to be getting much less attention than others —like food or art, on the internet. We felt that, even when an interest surely existed, it was difficult to find a quality website which was exclusively dedicated to get Japanese clothing closer to those who appreciated it internationally.
Suddenly, it occurred to us that maybe we could be helpful at the same time we had fun with the project —working on the web was not new to us, and in a very short time the first version of this site was born!
To us, it is a pleasure to be able to share with others our passion for Japanese clothing, and to provide help, whenever needed, to anyone who is interested in knowing more, or in owning their own pieces of clothing from Japan!
What can we help you with?
Current Japan has many kinds of fashion. Each one of them has their own uniqueness, and even if we have our personal preferences, we truly love learning and talking about the vast majority of these styles — be it because of their beauty, their elegance, their cuteness or the wild amounts of imagination put on creating their weirdness.
In this site we will do our best to provide good information about such styles, both traditional and modern, for you to learn about them and enjoy the process.
Also, if you are looking to buy pieces of clothing from Japan — be them modern or traditional, we will do our best to help you find what you are looking for and to provide links to good items that we find. Many of our pages contain information about where to buy the items, but if you need something that you can’t find, feel free to ask us via email!
