  • Japan Vintage.

    We believe that MIJ (Made in Japan) gear made in these good old days are a sort of "Heritage". We hope it should be reserved for future in good and playable condition for vintage guitar lovers across the world.

  • Our Policy.

    All gears in our shop are set up to playable condition. We try to describe item condition in details as possible as we can.

    And we are happy to communicate with buyers (new owners) for any questions. We (also guitar lovers) are aware that it is one of the most important and joyful things when getting new gear.

  • What is "tenokuni".

    It is Japanese word meaning "Country of Hand". It was made-up by Soetsu Yanagi, the art critic in 19th century, and founder of Mingei (hand-crafted art of ordinary people) movement. He used this word to explain unique and outstanding Japanese craftsmanship of artisans.

    We found this word as the best expression for the "Japan Vintage" gear.
