小苦樂

小苦樂は2017年2月、目白の路地裏で

日本伝統文化のお教室と甘味屋をオープンしました。

お店の名前でもある小苦樂は

 「小さな苦労を楽しむ」

​という意味を持っています。

利便性やスピードを優先する今の時代の中で

ふと足を止め日本の素晴らしさに目を向ける事や

一つ一つを積み重ねていく事の大切さを感じてもらいたい

そんな想いを込めて名付けました。

日本の伝統文化を、垣根、敷居、国境を越えて

様々な方に味わい、体験してほしい。

​そんな想いを育みながら目白の路地裏から発信します。

 CONCEPT

There are many ways to enjoy Japanese culture through

traditional performing arts, crafts, and cuisine.

By making these experiences accessible and approachable to people

from overseas and the younger Japanese generation, we aim to sustain,

share, and pass on Japanese traditions.

How often do we notice the influence of “culture” in our daily lives?

Just as Kimono fabric is woven neatly and with sophistication,

people have used their skills, wisdom, and imagination to create t

he unique cultures of this island nation from ancient times.

Accepting diversity and using creativity to adapt to the changing times,

the Japanese have refined many forms of cultures to create their original.
Everyday life, climate, food, and aesthetics...
We hope to invite everyone to take a fresh look at the riches

and wisdom nature brings through the four seasons, and its influence that

runs quietly yet powerfully in our blood and beats in our hearts.

BLUE CAMP JAPAN focuses on the artists and craftsmen that bring vivid

enthusiasm to the modern age. Our mission is to become the gateway for

the international visitors and younger generation to unravel

the genuine forms of our traditional culture

小苦樂

-KOKURA-

“Enjoying small obstacles”

 

People live with many thoughts

We haven’t forgotten the traditional values of Japanese culture,
however, the tides of the modern day are too rapid they are easily tucked

away in the back. Let’s take some time to pause.
We want “Kokura” to be a place that speaks to the innermost part of

your soul Cherishing the small things in life that lead to the present

We at BLUE CAMP JAPAN will continue to nurture our passion to

share Japanese culture beyond borders and boundaries

from the quiet alley of Mejiro.
