About Rin crossing

Rin crossing is a project to support various Japanese local manufacturers that are eagerly committed to producing items using local resources and traditional techniques. It is run by the ”Organization for Small and Medium Enterprises and Regional Innovation (SMRJ)”, an incorporated administrative agency which comes under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.

As of March 2015, only attractive select items from 180 manufacturers that have passed rigorous inspection by experts etc are certified as being part of the “Rin crossing collection”. Besides, the organization supports Japanese manufacturers to further develop their businesses by introducing creators who can work together to make better products and new buyers who can open new retail outlets.

With the opening of the special site on JAPANSQUARE, Rin crossing offers new opportunities for manufacturers to promote their skillfully created items, and proposes a brand-new lifestyle to customers.
