WHO WE ARE
Patternz.jp is a team of a writer and a photographer exploring patterns (Japanese and everything), history, and culture. Born and raised in Northeastern Japan, we took our culture for granted until we moved to the United States, which gave us the opportunity to reflect our own culture. What makes a Japanese culture unique and what we share in common with others? Those are our motivation to explore.
WHAT WE DO
We believe we can find more beauty through exploring patterns, designs, and spirits behind the history. Driven our curiosity, we research, interview, and share the thoughts and images for the better understanding of Japanese culture. The country with the world’s longest history never fails us to be amazed. Enjoy exploring and discovering insights with us.
