We Support BIPOC Women Makers + Small Business Owners!
Over our eight years in business, we have been lucky to call Oakland our home, and have built a thriving community that is inclusive, diverse, and kind. It is important to us, as Japanese-American women and small business owners, that we fight for a future that empowers other BIPOC women to lead in their communities and support their creativity. We continue to vote with our dollar, stand behind other small businesses + entrepreneurs, and keep Umami Mart as a loving space for people of all backgrounds and beliefs.

Umami Mart sprouted into this world as an international food + drink blog in 2007. Over the years, it has grown into a Japanese kitchen and barware importing business, based in Oakland, CA. Functional design, quality, and service are all a part of the Umami Mart philosophy, reflected in every facet of the business.
The Oakland shop, opened in 2012, is a curation of bar tools and glassware from Japan, as well as a bottle shop dedicated to sake, shochu, Japanese whisky, and beer. In 2019 we opened a cozy bar in the back of our retail shop – a hub for many events, community gatherings, and beloved regulars.
If you have any questions about us and the shop, please drop us a line!
