What is BEAMS?
BEAMS is a retail store that sells specially selected items. Since our foundation in Tokyo in 1976 we have maintained a philosophy of "changing the customs and cultures of young people in Japan" and operated with the concept of becoming the flagship for such a movement. Now in our 34th year, we also handle a wide range of art and craft and other household items in addition to fashion items. Our style of providing a place for people with wide ranging values is very popular amongst young people in Japan. BEAMS currently operates 115 stores throughout Japan and 6 stores in Hong Kong.

What this Website Means to BEAMS
BEAMS seeks to go beyond providing simply the value of the item itself and enable customers to derive satisfaction and comfort through their purchases. To convey the true nature of the item as much as possible we focus on the item's background and the thoughts of the item's producers. We intend to use our website to convey this kind of information and allow customers to experience what the BEAMS brand is all about through the style of our website.
