Asianshop in Oe, Kumamoto

A place of cultural communication for people of different nationalities

My hope is for KiraKira to serve as a place where people of different nationalities can gather and share the ircultures in various ways.

One reason for this was my concern that foreignres idents of Kumamoto felt isolated after the recent Kumamoto Earthquake. I believe that frequent communication will make it possible to provide support during disasters and other situations. I also wish to repay the kindness I have received from many people during my travels abroad.

When visiting Asian towns for the first time, I have felt a sense of nostalgia and peace even though the languages and customs differed from my own. Together with these products, I hope to share the fragrances and atmospheres of Asia.The store features a wide lineup of items I made or sourced during long-term stays in Asia, including clothing,bags, accessories, and other Asian-style goods.
