Edo Tokyo Kirari Project
Start of Sales on Chinese E-commerce Website

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government is conducting the Edo Tokyo Kirari Project in order to hone the traditional skills and long-established products of Edo Tokyo from new perspectives, and to convey their value and appeal to people both in Japan and abroad as representative brands of Tokyo.
In order to widely communicate the skills and attractiveness of the model businesses in this project and reach out to a wider audience, we launched a cross-border e-commerce website for China in August 2011 and one for Europe in March 2021. The website for China has recently been renewed to enhance its sales functions, and a special page (WeChat mini program) has been opened on WeChat, China's largest social media service, to start sales of traditional crafts and long-established specialty products.
