Villa Leonare is based in Karuizawa, Nagano Prefecture, Japan.
Karuizawa is a all-season highland resort at the foot of active Asama volcano. The first summer house was built here in 1886 by a British theologian, who was struck by the town's peacefulness and natural beauty, reminding him of his home town in Scotland. Numerous foreigners followed, summer cabins were built by foreign missionaries, consuls, business people and Karuizawa became a premier summer retreat. During later years the Japanese also followed to escape summer heat of Tokyo and today the number of summer houses and villas in Karuizawa top 20,000. Although there are only around 19,000 permanent residents, the total number of visitors is about 8 million per year. Karuizawa is the only place in the world to host both Summer and Winter Olympic games: 1964 Summer (Equestrian) and 1998 Winter (Curling). Karuizawa is the favorite vacation places of the Imperial family. John Lennon spent summer holidays in town in 1977-1979 with his wife Yoko and son Sean. Western culture is still alive here with numerous fine restaurants, museums, concerts, golf courses and summer houses of the rich and famous.
Villa Leonare was originally established by a husband and wife team with the purpose of introducing Japanese consumer to the finest western tableware.
Later, after numerous requests, we decided to expand our service worldwide.
Avid china collectors and connoisseurs of fine tableware ourselves, we wanted to share the excitement and pleasure of dining on fine china or simply sipping some tea from a favorite cup. We wanted to spread the word that even simple, every-day food served on beautiful tableware loks more sumptuous and tastes more delicious. When we source our products, we always do it as if we were purchasing for ourselves, with great care and pride, and we are always a little sad to part with them (although, at the same time, very happy when they do find a new home). We believe that vintage and antique tableware can also be an excellent investment, and not only financial, but an investment in your quality-of-life, as it is sure to improve with every use.
