I started my journey in the internationally recognized shoemaking city, Asakusa, Tokyo. Since I launched VERB at the age of 25, I have been making shoes here. Through working with artisans from many different backgrounds, I learned a lot about not only shoemaking, but also life. My dream is that our company can support and be a positive force for society for more than 100 years. No matter what life throws at us, we strive to keep a smile on our faces and bring joy to the people around us.
