Tourism Creation Lab. LLC.

Japonica Lodge specializes in Japanese brands, and provides high quality outdoor item for foreign citizen

Tokyo, Japan (26 August, 2015) – Tourism Creation Lab.LLC. starts overseas shipping service on 25th August 2015 through its online outdoor item shop “Japonica Lodge Select Shop” .

We have operated the online shop since this July with the following features;
・exclusive for foreign residents in Japan as well as foreign citizen.
・anytime tax-exemption regardless of the place you live in.
・specialize in Japanese Brands' outdoor items.

Most Japanese outdoor makers are SMEs (Small/Medium Enterprises). Although they produce very high-quality products, their budget on marketing and promotion is limited, and therefore it is difficult for them to reach international markets. We want as many foreigners to experience and fall in love with the quality of Japanese products, and promote them to the international stage. That is why, we start overseas shipping service for more people to touch and use the highquality products, which will make more fans of Japan.

Also we operate a real shop “Japonica Lodge” in Asakusa, Tokyo as before, thus customers can see and touch all the item displayed on Japonica Lodge Select Shop, when they visit Japan.

This new service is now available online at
