Reflections on a Pearl Sorting Journey: Discoveries, Challenges, and Dreams

Today is January 13th, and I continue the daily task of sorting pearls. This process, which began in mid-December, has been ongoing, interrupted only by the New Year’s holiday. It has been quite tiring, especially with nearly 10 days having passed since the start of this year’s business trip. Despite being on the trip, I haven’t had the chance to create any pearl products yet. Additionally, there’s been an increase in administrative work lately, especially when I return to the hotel.

By the way, today, while managing this site, I made a surprising discovery. In the admin panel, I found a list of people who have registered their email addresses on this site, something I hadn’t noticed before. Occasionally, I’ve thought, “No one is creating an account on this site,” but I never realized that people had indeed been registering. Thank you very much.

I will continue to learn more about this website. I created it without any specialized knowledge, and though it will take some time, I want to improve it gradually. Hopefully, someday we can exchange opinions about pearls on this site with everyone. Regardless of the country, everyone here is a fellow pearl enthusiast.

Personally, I was pleased to see access from Portugal. I studied Portugal during my university days. However, I had the impression that shipping from Japan to Portugal would be difficult. Upon rechecking, it seems shipping is possible, albeit at a slightly higher cost. I discovered a new private service that I wasn’t aware of before. By spring, I hope to be able to deliver Akoya pearls to Portugal as well.

Thank you again for your support.



I am part of a Japanese company with an Akoya pearl farm. Apart from the company, I personally run an Akoya pearl shop. I would appreciate it if I could share smiles with various people through pearls.
