We will have a special tasting event! Japanese vegan and gluten-free donut from Tokyo will join our event.


In 2018, we launched a vegan and gluten-free donut shop in Tokyo, Japan. Since then, our presence has expanded nationwide in Japan, garnering attention for our products. What sets our products apart is the incorporation of traditional Japanese fermented ingredients like amazake, enabling the effective intake of probiotics in our donuts. We also emphasize the use of clean ingredients. Additionally, we’ve introduced ‘Mochi’ textured donuts to our range. We invite you to indulge in our unique and nutritious donuts, exclusively crafted from Japan.

Satoko founder of satokomatsu, a native of Osaka, was nurtured by a blend of influences including her parents, an English teacher, and a Japanese calligraphy instructor. Throughout her university years, where she delved into Italian language and culture, Arabic, and Hebrew studies, she embarked on a journey to Florence to explore the realm of jewelry design.

After accumulating eight years of experience as a jewelry designer in Japan, Satoko relocated to New York in 2013 to further refine her design prowess. It was in 2015 that she took the bold step of establishing her personal jewelry line, marking a significant milestone in her creative journey.

Designed with beautiful curvy letters in Japanese うめ [oo-meh] means “plum blossom” in Japanese. Top part is including “う” and two petals at the bottom is designed with “め”. Using a word, design its shape so I call this style “word picture”. Very unique design concept. You can use this one as a conversation starter because the letters are well blended, nobody notices it’s letter until you explain. Then you can communicate with jewelry.

Pompkins Baby by Nappel

Pop Up Sox are made by Japanese craftsmen using special knitting machines that create the 3-D animal ears and hands that pop out– babies love them and so do grown-ups!

They are ideal baby shower gifts. Pompkins Baby organic cotton products have a natural and gentle feel. They are made from cotton that is grown in soil not treated with pesticides or chemical fertilizers for more than three years– ladybugs are used instead of pesticides, and is harvested after the frost has ended when leaves fall off naturally.
