Our Mission

The Japanese Pantry imports artisanal Japanese ingredients for professional and home cooks in the United States.

Japan is a country with a rich culinary heritage.  From beautiful and elevated kaiseki cuisine to simple yakitori, Japanese food is all about the quality of the ingredients.  Our travels to Japan have opened our eyes to the vast array of Japanese products, crafted from pristine ingredients with great care and respect for tradition.  Sadly, most never see the light of day in North America.  When, by chance, some do make it here, they are poorly marketed and consumers have no idea how to use them.  The Japanese Pantry aims to change all of that.
