About

I would find new and interesting ways to bring Kimono into our daily lives and all the possibile ways KIMONO can shine anew with you!

The store name NAGAOKA is my maiden name.
The store logo is my family emblem, KAMON.
The name of emblem is Daki-myouga.
Myouga is a name of a plant, and it is a kind of ginger.
It has fragrance, and can repel insects.
That is why Japanese people use the symbol as a charm to repel bad luck.
Hope the products with this logo can be your special charm!

I love KIMONO.

There are many different designs which use various colors and motifs in Kimono and Obi.

I was born and raised in Japan. My hometown, Yamagata, is surrounded by mother nature. There are beautiful forests and clear rivers filled with fish. So, I always feel nostalgic when i see kimonos, because of their vibrant and beautiful designs that reflect nature. Furthermore, these designs and motifs also carry various cultural meanings, for example: praying for happiness, long life, and luck. I find learning about these various meanings very fulfilling.

In Japan, the change in seasons is quite dynamic, and Japanese people enjoy wearing Kimono with suitable design and materials for each season.

However, wearing a kimono entails many steps that require special techniques, and people rarely have the opportunity to wear Kimono in this day and age.

Thus, I decided to redesign Kimono and Obi into suitable accessories for modern life, such as cell phone cases, card cases, hair accessories and bags. I opened this store so I can try and find new and interesting ways to bring Kimono into our daily lives.

I look forward to experiencing all the possibile ways KIMONO can shine anew with you!
