Kujira Japanese Art & Craft Community is introducing fine, unique and Kawaii art & craft selections from great Japanese creator's market.
Currently, we are 9 artists and 3 representatives group and active online since Summer of 2015.
Organizer (or so called Kujira rep. 1) started sharing Japanese culture in English for love for the mother country, Japan and the nurtured country, United States.
In 2017 Fall, we could become active offline, too. Great to meet you, Japan & art craft fans in Chicago!
We also support a couple of projects with good people and great cause so that we can together thrive for the peace and fair living.
Our journey of celebration continue!

Finally, finally the day is here! g to y, vintage Kimono upcycle factory is officially added to Kujira community!
They are mobilized by the wife (Yuko) and husband (Genta)'s happy engine and spreading their deep love for Japanese style of living by reviving precious Kimono which had once finished their roles as clothing.
Although g to y is specializing Wakomono, old Japanese Kawaii home and fashion items here, they have very important function as a florist for the Kawasaki locals. While they are busy hosting flower or Kimono themed workshops or sawing pillows or arranging pot flowers, they are daily active greening neighbor's public gardens voluntary.
We are so proud to have such good heart people as our family member and look forward to bringing more beauty to your life together.
We have an exciting news in the beginning of this Holiday season. Kujira Japanese Art & Craft community has just welcomed the letterpress shop, NANIKATSU owner and artist, Yuichiro Onishi! He's started letterpress in 2007 and been creating "Japanese" letterpress goods since then.
He works on his artworks by the use of type and wood block printing methods while he's providing custom order services. Also, he extends his hands to support other artists and open attractive workshops to public. Moreover, annually he’s been presenting at local art & craft fairs in the USA, so some of you might be familiar with him already.
As we mentioned already since it's Holiday season, NANIKATSU are covering our 2017 calendar needs. They will be available to purchase at our Etsy shop shortly.
We are so happy to gather with such various creative people in our community. Are you feeling the same?
