ABOUT US (Information based on the Japanese law concerning mail order)




Zen-shop.net is owned and operated by INTER-LAB CORPORATION.
The name "INTER" reflects Inter-Lab's focus and is a cumulation of the words International, Interactive, Interesting and Internet. The goal of Zen-shop.net is to offer products of interest to people who have a desire to be closer to Japan's culture, history, customs and crafts.
Though the Internet is an excellent tool in making products available to people from all over the world, Zen-shop.net has no interest in the marketing of inferior items, and as such takes great pride in continuing to provide quality in favor of quantity.
To this end, Zen-shop.net is always looking for more interesting or higher quality items at reasonable prices that we feel do justice to our country's crafts and culture, as well as the craftsmen who make them.
Since the inception of Inter-Lab Corporation in December 2000 and the opening of Zen-shop.net in April 2001, we have and will continue to take pride in supplying high quality products to discerning customers from all over the world.

As we all know, the advance of modern technology and industry throughout the world can adversely affect how we regard our cultural assets. Younger generations increasingly show little or no interest in the trades and skills of their elders. With the passing of time, the numbers of skilled craftsmen will surely decline throughout the world. This is something that Zen-shop.net would hope to delay or even prevent by re-generating international and local interest in customs, culture and crafts starting with Japan.

Furthermore, Zen-shop.net is interested in communication and interchange of culture and customs, eventually hoping to provide items of interest from many countries around the world for sale to our local Japanese customers.

The world's increasingly borderless environment, while allowing fast paced communication and large scale business throughout the world, also poses a threat to each country's cultural identity, customs and crafts. While understanding that although these advances in our global society can of course be beneficial, we also feel that due caution is needed in order to protect and preserve each country's culture, customs and crafts. Zen-shop.net hopes that through the introduction of Japan's crafts and culture that you will also take deeper interest in your own country's culture, customs and crafts too.

Although Zen-shop.net is only a tiny part of the large borderless world that we all inhabit, we sincerely hope that our activities can contribute to the preservation of, and generation of interest in the many cultures, customs and crafts throughout the globe.
