goro’s was established in Tokyo in 1965 as a specialty store of the leather items.
Bags, small leather items, and belts were main collections of goro’s that was crafted until 1960.
In the late 60’s, they’ve started manufacturing the metal items.
As we mentioned in our previous post, Goro learned the leather crafting techniques from the American troops who was residing in Japan.
While he spent time learning by himself, he finally opened his first shop in Tokyo’s Aoyama when he was 27 years old.
The shop was relocated to Tokyo’s Harajuku in 1971 after his return from South Dakota.
This is how the legend of goro’s started in Harajuku.
