In 1946 , Majimaya confectionery tool shop was founded by the current President’s grandfather, Saburo Yoshida. He succeeded the shop name officially from Kisaburo Majima tool shop (the oldest confectionery tool shop in Japan) in Kanda Manseibashi. At present, the shop located just around the corner of Asakusa Honganji Temple, about a 3-minute walk from Kappabashi Tool Street.

The shop handles tools from all over the world as a specialty shop for confection. Also, as the craft man of wooden molds for over sixty years at Majimaya, Hitoshi Ohgawara’s creations were popular all over Japan – he made the happiness of making sweets for many people. His molds therefore create people’s happiness. So KAMITOPEN designed the concept around the theme, “molds of happiness”.
