About Us

Wanann, Inc.


We believe that we have something in common beyond the border, language, and religion. For instance, no one gets upset by being smiled at. We want to create things that we can share the happiness and impression. This motivated us to start a business. WANANN, Inc. is referred to as wan-an in Japanese, wanan in English. “Wan” means “bowl” and “an” means “roughly-built shack.” Happiness and impression, these are not so big things. They are something like a feeling that we will have when we are in the space with agreeable fellows to shelter from wind and rain, and hot water is poured into a bowl. We would like to continue to provide little creation for you.
