Introducing the New Aesthetic of Japan

HULS GALLERY curates and showcases fine crafts from around Japan, each with its own heritage and expression but together illustrating the country’s distinctive appreciation of beauty.

In recent years, Japanese crafts made with traditional techniques have come to attract attention around the world. Rooted in the country’s diverse regions and cultures, today’s artisans continue to build on those living traditions.

We strive to be insightful concierges of Japanese craft, giving people in Japan and around the world a personal introduction to these special pieces and the stories behind them, and sharing new ways of appreciating how they can enrich the moments of our lives.


We plan and organize various events related to Japanese crafts in HK, Singapore and Japan.
