YAMAGUCHI SHUZO
NIWA NO UGUISU
The largest river in the Kyushu region of Japan is the Chikugogawa. The abundance of pure, clean water in the Chikugo region is said to have given birth to one of the three largest sake-brewing regions in Japan; many breweries were born there. The brewer of Niwa no Uguisu (aka. “Garden's Nightingale”) is Yamaguchi Shuzojo: located in northern Chikugo. The very first brewers of Yamaguchi Shuzojo loved to watch the Japanese nightingales in the garden playing in the water and drinking in the gardens. When the 6th generation family head Yamaguchi Risuke saw this, he made the decision to brew sake using that water.
【TOSA-SAKE】
BIJOFU
Premium spring water greatly contributes to a vigorous activity of microbes during sake brewing. BIJOFU brews their sake using undercurrent water of the Nahari River, flowing from a forest of Yanase Cedar, the prefectural tree of Kochi. Also, they use the highest ranking sake rice, Yamadanishiki, grown in the Special-A rice paddies in Tojo in Hyogo Prefecture. In addition, when it comes to "terroir" of sake, they make use of Gin no Yume, an optimal sake rice variety developed in Kochi Prefecture, and Matsuyama Mi-i, another optimal sake rice from neighboring Ehime Prefecture,
to brew sake representing regional tastes.

This water contains no iron or manganese, which are detrimental elements in sake.

in the future.
SAKAYA
NYC’s first store specializing in premium sake and shochu.
Our Story
Our dream? To share our excitement about premium sake with kindred spirits like you. Although we've tasted or drunk (yes, there is a difference) a number of different sake, we're always seeking to learn something new about it. We've studied under Sake Samurai and nihonshu authority extraordinaire John Gauntner at his Professional Sake Course in Tokyo, worked in and visited numerous sake breweries, izakaya (sake pubs), and sake shops throughout Japan. We continuously experiment at home with food pairings both Japanese and Western (Cheese with sake? Absolutely!). And we still realize that we've only scratched the surface of the tip of the “sake iceberg!” There is always more to explore and learn and we believe that the fun is in sharing that with you.

ELLYS PASTRY
🌸Japanese Pastry in NYC🌸
I knew the purpose of my baking from reading the title of a single cookbook. In Japanese, the book was titled "Sozai Yori Sozai Rashiku", meaning something like "More Ingredient Than Ingredient"These words are difficult to translate into English but to me they mean something similar to the concept of "Less Is More". Essentially allowing the ingredients to speak for themselves, using delicate techniques to bring out the best in them. Whenever I've felt unsure or uninspired when developing new cake recipes, these words guide me back to my original intentions. What do I want to express? What do I want to communicate?  With these words in mind I can come to understand. To me these are magic words. No matter where you come from, I hope to make a cake you can enjoy.
MISOMARU
Miso-Dama's (MISOMARU) history goes all the way back to the late 15th century to mid 16th century during the civil war era in Japan.   Back then, MISODAMA was rolled and fired on the surface then dried under the sun, in order to keep long time during the transportation.   Soldiers are used to pack their MISODAMA along with other foods (such as dried rice, pickled plums, dried mushrooms and rice balls) in their pouch (see picture) and carried around their body.  MISO was a great source of nutrition and medicinal foods for them.   Even when they didn’t have access to fire for cooking, they could bite into the ball and eat it like a power bar.
Miso is packed with essential vitamins and minerals,  and MISODAMA supported their health during the battles.


NOE NO OMISE
Vegan Chocolate
Refined sugar, gluten, dairy, and soy- free sweet.
Our chocolate is handcrafted simply by four main ingredients. Cacao butter, cacao powder, maple syrup or lakanto (monk fruit sweetener).
How our chocolate is different and special any other chocolate?

A chocolate project started by a mother, Yuki and her 5 year old daughter at that time, Noé during the lockdown of the pandemic first as a fun activity to make sweets and chocolates at home. Knowing that her child would want to eat everything they made together, and surprised at how much refined sugar and gluten is used in sweets. Yuki decided to make healthy vegan chocolate with no refined sugar (instead using maple syrup and Lakanto) and using high quality cacao with great health benefits that they both could enjoy together. As Yuki and Noé began to adorn the tasty chocolates, NOÉ NO OMISE ("Noé's shop" in Japanese) was born.

Hearted Beauty
Heartd Beauty (pronounced “Hearted”) is a clean makeup brand that is passionate about giving people the option to have high quality makeup with safe, natural and organic ingredients for a reasonable price.
Beauty-lover and makeup obsessed Joanna Yao has tried her fair share of cosmetic products. She first fell in love with cosmetics while watching her mother put on her makeup every morning. After years of sifting through thousands of products, comparing and testing each formula to find the best on the market, she was still left desiring a line of products that ticks all of her boxes: easy-to-use, clean ingredients and phenomenal formula that is actually nourishing to the skin.

SATOKOMATSU
Jewelry can connect people. Language is a communication tool. Jewelry designed with letters of an alphabet, especially in Arabic and Japanese, has a very unique style. When somebody notices you wearing my jewelry, you can start a conversation. This is the original role of language: forging human relationships. That might be the first step toward PEACE.

Later, she began to stretch her imagination as a painter, using new materials to "paint" and to innovate within the jewelry field.

Her artwork "Art to Wear" has been seen on Metropolitan Museum shop, VOGUE, NY Fashion Week, INSIDER and more.

JOGI NO YUME
Our story began in Hong Kong, where straight Asian parenting and school disciplines existed. Jewelry was once something unreachable for two ordinary 90s girls like us. The rebellion finally took place after college graduation. Healing from ear piercing did not take long, our obsession of earrings grew like wide fire. We shopped from local to premium brands, went on earrings hunting in South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Thailand etc. Turned out finding a pair of compatible earrings is just like finding the glass slippers for Cinderella. Big brand products do not always bring the greatest level of comfort. Local brand products do not mean any sacrifces on cuteness and quality.

Oishii Strawberry
Super Omakase Strawberry. Oishii Strawberry was featured on New York Times, Wall Street Journal, The New York and more. Oishii brand combined the best farming practices with an obsession for quality to ensure only the most delicious berries make it to your doorstep.  Many high-end brands and restaurants became enamored with their flavor, aroma and texture.

Izak x Upstairs NYC
Limited Edition
Super popular Izak's party illustration Tote bag. All goods & accessories sold out very quickly. We reproduce with the illustration with limited edition.
IZAK ZENOU is one of the fashion & beauty’s most sought-after and  globes top illustrators. We're thrilled to have Izak for Japanese inspired bamboo Sumi live sketch.

Izak has an inimitable way of telling emotional and graceful stories for high-end brands like Chanel, Lancôme, Celine, Sephora, Estée Lauder, le Printemps — to name but a few. More than any other, his 20+ year work for Henri Bendel on 5th avenue has shown every facet of his branding talents — from traditional prints to murals or windows, and from product decor and designs to artist in residence events.

Adopted by prestige magazines from day one of his career — from Vogue, Elle, Self, Marie Claire, l’Officiel, InStyle and Madame Figaro, to New York Times Magazine, New Yorker, Town and Country, WSJ or Travel & Leisure – he has become an icon for many of his peers in the design world, as well as for his ever-growing list of fans in New York, Tokyo, Paris and more. But the only praise he is after is the smile in the eyes of the next face he will draw today.

Spiritual and profound, yet with an infectious “ joie de vivre”
