About Us

Nagamochi Shop is an online only store based in Toronto that offers sustainably crafted, long-lasting goods for your daily life and self-care. We also feature a collection of beautiful art pieces and curated culture books.

All items are mainly sourced from Japan and local Canadian artisans thoughtfully selected by Mami and Meg, two Japanese women living in Canada.

Nagamochi- means "long-lasting", "long-wearing", "wears well" in Japanese. It's also a name of a large oblong wooden chest which was used in houses of Samurai families to store fabrics and daily items.

We believe that adapting more Long-lasting goods and meticulously crafted items into our life will create a positive impact and help us to make the world a better place.

Hi I'm Mami, founder of Nagamochi Shop.
I live in Toronto with my husband and my dogs. I'm geeky type person who love reading, doodling, fashion, art, and indie music.

I was born in a city on the southwestern island of Japan’s main islands called Kyushu, and after spending most of my life in Japan, I moved to Canada in 2014. 

Back in the day, before our society was filled with so much stuff, my grandma would use all sorts of things - from a tiny coin purse to a bamboo shopping basket - for years. She'd get them from small factories, second-hand stores, or even handmade by someone.

With the rise of cheap, mass-produced products in our society, many traditional Japanese companies that once crafted high-quality, handmade goods have vanished. But in recent years, a new wave of small businesses has emerged, breathing new life into these fading industries. Even major Japanese companies, known for their commitment to quality, are now making strides towards creating more eco-friendly products.

To introduce such items to my friends, I started this shop.

For starting the shop, I invited my like-minded friend, Meg and we enjoy finding those hidden items. Within Canada, we also found many artisans who produce unique items.

We bring only our favourite items we carefully select to this shop.
Hope those items will makes your heart sing with joy and can have a longer life. We believe it will help to make our planet a better place.

With Love,

- March 2021
