About Us


NIHON ICHIBAN is a shop for real Japanese prodcuts operated by the company Chinriu Honten Limited. We have been established since 1871 and are run by the same family for five generations. This heritage allows us to access many other traditional Japanese businesses that produce high-quality products that often are only available outside of Japan through us.
