This is ‘KOTO-HAJIME’ project which we develop the products in a cross-sectional way by associating with various traditional crafts in Kyoto.
‘Ultraman x Kyoto traditional crafts’ series were born to make a chance ‘to see a real crafts of Kyoto’ for everyone. This collaboration products were achieved because of the 50th year anniversary of ‘Ultraman’ who is one of the famous heroes in Japan.
Now, we have the next collaboration production after Ultraman and it is ‘Godzilla’ which you also know through a new movie!
Under the supervision of Toho Co., Ltd., the original products with a traditional techniques of Kyoto is Godzilla on Kyo-gawara.
In order to make its world view express fully on BEACON KYOTO, we asked for a cooperation to ‘Kyogawara Onishi’, Masahisa Asada (Asada Seikawara Tile Factory *His articles is here), and now we completed a new Godzilla item that we have never seen before.
At this time, we are going to start selling both items ‘Kyoto x Ultraman’ and ‘Kyoto x Godzilla’ at ‘Otsukaimono Hompo’ by Nakamura-rousoku which has a store in the Teramachi-dori shopping street in Kyoto.
*We also have the article of Nakamura-rousoku here.
At this Otsukaimono Hompo, they carry ‘Japanese traditional candle’ by Nakamura-rosoku and also they have the times of ‘Koshun-toen’, well known for Kyoyaki, Kiyomizuyaki and also when you go inside on the first and second floor, you are able to see more various cultures in Kyoto. Please stop by if you visit its area!

What is KOTO-HAJIME ;
KOTO-HAJIME is the product that is created by a team of various craftsmen in Kyoto, and the name was decided in order to have a meaning of an opportunity to get to know about crafts of Kyoto easily and also hope to be the beginning of a new wave from Kyoto and at the same time, this is also the name of B to B project.
We have some issues in front of us to develop products with a traditional tequnique such as very special design we have to make, limitation of reproduction, and delivery adjustment coming from division of labour, but we organize them into our special system and would love to support and make the best use of a traditional technique into this modern business world.
