Happy New Year!
We Globalkitchen Japan would like to express our deepest gratitude for continuous support from you last year. Thanks to those supports, we could bring wonderful Japanese culture and products to the customers all over the world and make them happy.
Not only great functions and designs, authentic Japanese traditional crafts also carry manufacturer's strong passion to make customers truly happy. We would like to deliver those passion behind products to you.
The Tokyo Olympic will be held this year 2020, whose keyword “Omotenashi (spirit of hospitality)” is also our concept. You will realize manufacturer’s intent, consideration or creativity behind products only when you use them in a long term. The true values people appreciate can never be created without this authentic Omotenashi spirit.
Today the trend is changing from excessive consumerism to eco-friendliness. The era with disposal goods has ended and a new era has been launched in which goods are more valued and used with affection in a lifetime. This should be “true wealth” that people today are pursuing. We can see it in Japanese traditional techniques and manufacturing concept that have been passed down over time.
Old goods are not just something worn out but something more quaint that you have more affection with. Those goods will enrich your life with each memorable and exciting moment.
Globalkitchen Japan will work even harder to serve as a bridge between customers and skillful manufactures to spread lifetime kitchen tools and tableware as well as other Japanese crafts.
We are going to launch a lot of new campaigns via SNS etc. going forward. We look forward to having another great year with you all.
Have you heard about the Star Festival, called Tanabata? Tanabata is originally one of the looms that chosen girls used to weave kimono for God. Those kimono were laid for good harvest and cleansing. After Buddhism was brought to Japan, we have got Obon, "Japanese Halloween" where we welcome Gods and our ancestors'
Shichirin (earthen charcoal brazier) has been used to grill dried fish, mushrooms and vegetables since ancient times. Its main features are ceramic effect and radiant heating. These enables Shichirin to grill ingredients without losing moisture and flavor. We would like to show you "diatomaceous earth stove", which can slowly heats ingredients by infrared radiation to make them juicer and more flavorful. We will also show you how to use diatomaceous earth stoves.
