Riga Collection, the first specialized store of Latvian-made goods, has opened in the Japanese capital of Tokyo.

The idea of Japanese businessman Yojiro Kawashima and his wife, and unveiled at the end of July, the one-of-a-kind store offers flax textiles and knitwear, honey and chocolate, toys, uniquely designed products made from glass, scented candles and ecologically made cosmetics.
The Latvian embassy in Japan and the Latvian Investment and Development Agency assisted the couple in finding suppliers for the Latvian goods.
“I am happy to open such a store in Tokyo, and I expect that more and more Japanese people will be able to get acquainted with these unique products – and through them, with Latvia itself,” said a beaming Mr Kawashima at the opening. “The opening of the store is symbolic of the strengthening friendship between Latvia and Japan.”
Riga Collection, he added, will also act as a messenger of Latvian culture, while leaflets about tourism opportunities in Latvia will be available at the store as well.
Two shops in Japan are already offering Latvian-made goods, but the Riga Collection store will be the first in Japan to sell only Latvian-made goods, offering products by a variety of producers.
