About Us


For Nippon Merch to be the go-to for people across the globe to access items and information from Japan, and an easy way for real people in Japan to play their part in spreading Japanese culture.



Our love for Japanese pop culture drives us to spread its charms across the globe. We create a platform that lets us team up with Japanese artists with the same goals, so that we can spread the joys of Japanese pop culture to places and people we wouldn't be able to on our own.


A New Way of Thinking

Nippon Merch started as a t-shirt company has since expanded into a full lineup of apparel, accessories and home decors. We seek out these canvases to give artists more ways to feature their work and for fans to choose. Every time you buy from us, you're supporting great art and artists.

We're based in Chicago and have been since we opened our doors in 2019, and we couldn't love our hometown more.
