Most of us think of attentive, thoughtful service or a careful consideration of others when we hear the word omotenashi. But as the products curated by the OMOTENASHI Selection demonstrate, some of the most appealing items are also a physical manifestation of the thought and consideration of the product designers, farmers, and artisans who brought them into being.
The OMOTENASHI Selection is a project that seeks out a variety of items from around Japan, with an aim of sharing them with international audiences. To celebrate the announcement of this year’s selected items, a retail event is taking place at Takashimaya Nihonbashi department store, where visitors can find a variety of goods, from food to jewelry and from glassware to metalwork. Drop by just to browse around, buy something for a friend, or pick up a little something for yourself…
