Reservation Form

Instructions:

  • Fill out all fields marked with an asterisk* and submit the form.
  • We will email you a confirmed date and time after coordinating the schedules of our Kintsugi artist and store staff. To finalize your reservation, reply to our confirmation email by the due date if the schedule is acceptable.
  • Our confirmation email will be sent from info@isono-revitalizing-office.jp. If you do not see it in your inbox, please check your spam folder.

Important Notes:

  • We regret that we are unable to accept last-minute reservations with less than one week's notice or customers who only wish to tour our studio or experience Kintsugi without the intention of purchasing our Kintsugi pieces.
  • You may view and purchase the same Kintsugi pieces currently available in our web store at our studio. However, since online orders take priority, please inform us in advance if you would like to reserve any pieces until your visit.
  • We are pleased to offer the same prices as our online store, but please note that sales tax is included in the retail price because our studio is not tax-free.
  • We offer our Kintsugi experience free of charge exclusively to customers who purchase a Kintsugi piece at our studio. Although the full traditional Kintsugi process takes several months, you will participate in the final steps. This hands-on experience involves applying quick-dry urushi lacquer to a small dish and sprinkling it with brass powder.
  • Please allow three hours for your entire visit, including travel time and the kintsugi experience.
  • Your request may not be accommodated depending on our availability.

Testimonials from Kintsugi Shoppers

See what our visitors are saying

A customer from Texas U.S.

"There are many shops selling "Kintsugi like" pieces, but The Kintsugi Labo JAPAN is the only shop that I trusted and wanted to buy the authentic Kintsugi pieces from in Japan. Considering not only the stunning Kintsugi techniques, but also the value of the original vessels, I don't think the price range is too expensive. It's very much worth coming here to buy."
