Meet the Founder

Message from CEO & Founder Audrey (Aitaikimochi)

Welcome to AitaiKuji's new and improved website! My name is Audrey, and I am the CEO and Founder of 株式会社Aitai Japan, the company that owns the anime and video game e-commerce website,!

You might be thinking, what exactly is "AitaiKuji?"
Kuji is a website for fans started by a fan.

AitaiKuji was a small scale side project of mine that was prompted by my followers requesting me to create an outlet where they can obtain the same anime and video game merchandise that I enjoyed buying while living in Japan. Prior to this, I enjoyed translating news and official content from Japanese to English in the various fandoms that I was apart of. Soon after I started AitaiKuji, I came to realize there was a need to create a direct connection between Japanese limited edition anime goods and fandoms to enhance the fandom experience in a positive and fun way for everyone to enjoy.

I officially started 株式会社Aitai Japan, a full-fledged corporate company here in Japan, in 2016 and since then, we have grown to a team of over 12 people from different countries all around the world. We have employees from Japan, the United States, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Poland, France, Indonesia, and more! Our multi-cultural working environment just further proves that people from all walks of life can come together and create something great and share in the fandoms that we enjoy through anime and video game merchandise.

Our main goal at AitaiKuji is to provide an exciting shopping experience and giving easy access to the exclusive anime and video game merchandise available in Japan for everyone, no matter where you are located around the world! We hope that this outlet can enhance one’s enjoyment of the various fandoms that they are in and create a space where people can have fun with their anime and video game goods!

We are working hard every day to improve our services, and we always welcome any form of feedback in order to create an even better shopping experience. We are so thankful for everyone’s support and love throughout the years and cannot express in words how grateful we are for all of our fans. We hope to be able to become even bigger and better than before, all thanks to you, our fans! From fan to fan, 心の底から感謝しています。これからもよろしくお願いいたします!
