HIGHTIDE is a brand established in Fukuoka, Japan in 1994, specializing in office supplies and stationery. While our products evoke American and European nostalgia, their design and functionality have been developed with the utmost care using cutting-edge technology.

In addition to the popular HIGHTIDE planners, our brand offers a number of product lines, including HIGHTIDE, Penco, Nähe, and New Retro, each with its own distinct style. We also offer daily essentials from various Japanese makers, their uses ranging from the office, to school, to home; from Japanese incense to playful stickers.

HIGHTIDE STORE DTLA opened in the summer of 2017, and CORNERSHOP BROOKLYN followed in 2021. Both stores are inspired by "bunbogu-ya", a local stationery store that always existed near a school, a place familiar to anyone who grew up in Japan. In these small stores, shelves were crammed with notebooks, pencils, erasers, pen cases, cheap sweets, and toys. For students with little pocket money, these stores served as a place to hang out, alone or with friends.
Our DTLA location was expanded to the next door in November, 2023, and we call the space HIGHTIDE ANNEX where we feature well-made and rare brands from Japan and the U.S.

At HIGHTIDE STORE DTLA we host various pop-ups and feature Japanese makers and local artists. CORNERSHOP BROOKLYN shares its humble space with The Moss and Green, a Japanese kokedama bonsai studio and plant shop. Nested in the two megalopolises of Los Angeles and New York, we hope to offer a haven for the community that inspires slow-living and self-care.
