passion for goro's
across the world
goro’s is founded by Mr. Goro Takahashi, the legendary Japanese craftsman of Native American style jewellery and leather items.
Goro first learnt how to carve leather from a US occupation troop soldier during his teenage and opened his first shop in Aoyama, Tokyo in 1966 at the age of 27. He then moved to the USA to study silver carving from the Native Americans. He was given the title “Yellow Eagle” by a Sioux tribesman.
After his return to Japan, Goro Takahashi moved his shop from Aoyama to Harajuku, which is also in Tokyo. He added this Native American style to his creative design sense, which elevated his jewellery to an even higher level.
As a goro's professional store, we have been in operation for the past 10 years. While there are many stores in Harajuku, the home of goro’s, that sell goro’s items together with other fashion brands, we have been consistently dealing only with goro’s. Thanks to the supporters of DELTAone, we maintain the world's largest goro's inventories from different periods.
DELTAone has been welcoming fans of goro’s from all over the world. And now, we are trying to expand and share the passion of goro’s towards the international countries. Along with this challenge, whenever we face fans of goro’s, we strongly feel the wonderfulness of goro’s.
Why we love goro's
We believe goro’s is a treasure of Japan. The beauty of artistic works, its unique history, countless anecdotes, unparalleled culture, strong philosophy, and warm and big community left behind by Mr. Goro Takahashi, the founder of goro’s, has not only passed down since his death but also continues to fascinate the fans of goro’s around the world.
goro’s is a very unique brand. We are not confident to classify goro’s as a brand. It is something more than just a brand. They don’t follow anything that the modern fashion brand would do for marketing. They don’t have an online store. They don't even accept credit card payments. It can be described as eccentric and stubborn but it is also comfortable to see goro's keep being as it has been so.
To cherish the emotional connection with their fans, goro's is only selling in person at their home store in Harajuku. There is no official branch, retailers, agents, etc. We, DELTAone, are also not in any of those relations.
As goro's items are carefully crafted by hands one by one, the supply of the items is relatively limited. However, the market demand for their items is very high and getting even higher day by day.
The symbolic long queueing line of goro’s fans wishing to enter the goro's store has become one of the most iconic sights of Harajuku. There is a lottery to determine who can enter the store every day. Even if you are lucky enough to enter the store, it does not directly mean that you can buy the item that you want. Only when a relationship of trust is established between goro’s and you, you will be allowed to purchase the desired or order special-made items.
Money does not matter. The experience is sometimes described as "training". We don’t know such a brand experience, apart from goro’s. The current goro's are viewed as they missioned themselves to preserve this originality and culture for the founder Mr. Goro.
We believe that this kind of mission protecting the brand uniqueness is one of the strong factors that made goro’s legendary and built the strong engagement of fans toward goro's. In the era wherein many things are threatened to change at lightning speed to survive, it can be said that trying not to change might be very brave and people on the contrary might feel comfortable with something that doesn't ever change.
We, also as a fan of goro’s, work at DELTAone with the desires to help goro's lovers and ultimately want to pass down goro’s to the next generation. If there is no one to pass on the stories, the precious culture will be lost. We pursue to be the best place to buy and sell and talk to each other about goro's.
Due to its popularity and premium price on the secondary market, goro's has been plagued by the presence of fakes. Needless to say, buying a fake is a tragedy. With the motto of "Selling only genuine goro’s", we have been refining our inspection skills and knowledge. We confidently say that we are the ones who built the fundamentals of goro's authentication and shared them with goro’s buyers to eliminate fakes from the market.
With the skills and knowledge of authenticity appraisal backed by thorough theories rather than sensory judgments, and with careful explanations to customers, we are told by our customers that they can be confident to purchase goro’s items at DELTAone.
Professionalism is essential when assessing customers’ precious goro’s items. Without it, it is impossible to make the best assessment. Lack of skills and knowledge is fatal especially when it comes to assessing special-made items, and it can lead to a possibility of labeling a customer's treasure as fake or giving it an inappropriate appraisal value.
We work hard every day to make sure that our customers can keep trusting us.
With the Best, to the World
We are confident that we are the best. With the best, we serve our best supporters to pursue our mission to share the passion of goro's to the world.
We are always thankful to all of the DELTAone supporters. We can only exist with the best support of customers who trust us to buy and sell.
We can build the best goro's inventory because there are customers who trust us to sell their precious items. We can buy items because there are customers who trust us to buy goro's and overcoming the fear of fakes. We keep doing our best to serve all the supporters all over the world.
In recent years, we continue our expansion with all the support from our customers. We opened our second store “Altair” in 2019, while we entered the Hong Kong market through E-commerce also in the same year. In 2020, we opened our third store, “Alshine” and our fourth store, “Noir” in Tokyo.
Finally, we opened our first overseas retail store in Hong Kong in August 2020.
At Hong Kong, we confidently provide the best professional service for the fans of goro's. We are very excited to meet you at our store.
DELTAone Hong Kong
Since the launch of DELTAone, we have been welcoming many goro’s fans from all over the world, mainly from Asia, Europe, and the USA. In the meantime, we had been receiving countless requests from those overseas customers for international shipping and opening stores outside Japan.
To meet these demands, we finally launched DELTAone Hong Kong in March 2019, starting from an online store where customers in Hong Kong and around the world can purchase goro’s items with English and Chinese language support.
At the very beginning of 2020, we held a pop-up store at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Hong Kong.
In August 2020, we finally opened our long-awaited first overseas store at Mira Place in Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong.
We, DELTAone Hong Kong, have a mission of Sharing the passion for goro's across the world.
