This soap comes in the form of the Japanese celebratory fish, the bream. This delicate shape was created using a process based on the wooden mould, traditionally used to make the Japanese sweet called Rakugan. It can be used not only as a regular gift, but also as a celebratory gift for weddings, a birthdays, a thank you gift, a gift for your new neighbours, house warming, etc.
Tamanohada soaps are made from entirely plant-based material, from natural plant oil. The soap uses "RSPO" vegetable oils, which has a certification made in collaboration with Green Peace against deforestation. Leaving your soap hanging will also lightly perfume your bathroom.

  • Lily scent: A pure white floral with a refreshing scent blended with a leafy green scent. A neat and fresh lily scent.
  • Pomegranate scent: Blended with lemon oil and menthol. A refreshing floral scent spreads in the depth.
  • Muscavado: A floral bouquet-like scent is blended with a rich brown sugar scent. A high-quality scent with a slight sweetness.

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design.

We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to our modern lifestyle. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.

Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.
