NEW YORK, Feb. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- TAKUMI JAPAN, sponsored by the Central Federation of Societies of Commerce and Industry, Japan, will be presenting at Japan Week March 6-8, 2014, in New York's Grand Central Terminal's Vanderbilt Hall as the final event of seven international trade shows that have introduced Japanese micro, small and medium-sized businesses to a new global audience. The TAKUMI JAPAN project presented more than 300 unique products from 100 Japanese micro, small and medium-sized businesses – from handcrafted goods to food and beverages – at these events that took place from January to March, in the U.S., U.K., Germany and France.
TAKUMI translates to artisans who have skilled techniques and create products with an acute attention to details and aesthetic. TAKUMI embodies the spirit of 'monozukuri' (which translates to 'making things'), and with the TAKUMI JAPAN initiative, Japanese small and medium-sized businesses are able to share this spirit of 'monozukuri' overseas by showcasing their handcrafted goods. Visitors to Japan Week will be able to experience the spirit of 'monozukuri' through these goods – conjuring up images of a local artisan using his plane to shave wood so thin it's nearly transparent, or a metal worker hammering metal so hot the sizzle can be heard.
At Japan Week, TAKUMI JAPAN will introduce the TAKUMI initiative, and showcase modern crafts from Japanese businesses that highlight Japanese tradition, technology, design and local origin. TAKUMI JAPAN has selected wood, metal, glass, lacquer, porcelain and fabric items to portray a modern feel to follow in the theme of Japan Week's futuristic focus. Additionally, business matching and informational sessions for professional buyers will be available with TAKUMI JAPAN executives.
In addition to Japan Week, TAKUMI JAPAN will be displaying the traditional and modern goods in KITEYA SOHO (www.kiteya.com), a Japanese boutique in Manhattan. At KITEYA SOHO from February 26th to March 8th, there will be a special TAKUMI JAPAN section to display several handcrafted goods.
TAKUMI JAPAN was developed by the CFSCIJ, an economic organization that supports Japanese micro, small and medium sized businesses and their communities. TAKUMI is a part of a national initiative to support these types of businesses that are looking to expand their businesses overseas. In Japan, micro, small and medium-sized businesses currently account for 99.7 percent of companies in the country and make up roughly 70 percent of Japan's employment.
Buyers and retailers interested in learning more about the TAKUMI JAPAN initiative, or the participating companies and products, can meet with representatives at Japan Week/KITEYA SOHO or by visiting the TAKUMI JAPAN website at: www.takumijapan.jp.
