Rikumo Journal is the official blog and journal of Japanese lifestyle store Rikumo. We are an online publication dedicated to publishing stories about traditional and contemporary Japanese design and culture.  Inspired by our home city of Philadelphia and our Japanese roots, we bring you the stories and influences behind our favorite collections.  We cover facets of contemporary and traditional Japanese culture that shape the shifting tides of design both in Japan and on the international stage. Here you will find: 

  • A Collections page with information on our favorite Rikumo lines, including craftsman profiles and care instructions.

  • Articles exploring the innate culture, influences, philosophy and craftsmanship that powers Japan's design identity.

  • Recipes, interviews with local artists, field trips, studio tours, and more things we enjoyed.
