What is Kintsugi?
”Kintsugi” is a repair technique that repairs damaged parts such as cracks, chips, and cracks with metal powder such as gold. The culture of valuing things, which has been passed down in Japan since ancient times, is attracting attention from all over the world.

MUJI Shinjuku will reopen in September 2021 after renovations, becoming a flagship store specializing in products, services, and art that focus on environmental and social issues. Kintsugi repair requests are due to a business partnership with the refurbishment business by “Tsugutsugu”.
Kintsugi requests are accepted by bringing a broken vessel and filling out an application form. Tsugutsugu picks up the pottery requested to be brought in, repairs the kintsugi, and returns it to the client. If you want to know your item is repairable or not, you can get a rough estimate in advance by attaching a photo of the vessel to an e-mail instead of bringing it to the store.
