Japan has one of the oldest and most accomplished mountaineering cultures in the world. From the iconic specter of the 12,389 ft peak of Mt. Fuji, to Sukayu Onsen, the snowiest place on Earth, mountains have inspired the Japanese people for centuries. Samurais fought in the mountains by day and wrote poetry about them at night, and Buddhist monks have retreated there to contemplate the nature of reality as well as breed the dogs that were their constant companions. Today, Yamakami - or 'Mountain Spirit' - celebrates both the mountain culture of Japan and the joy of canine companionship with the world's first line of Man/Dog Adventure Fashion accessories.
All products are made from the highest quality mountaineering-grade ropes and materials, resulting in a line of accessories for you and your dog that are both rugged and stylish. So whether you are exploring the mountains of Hokkaido or the urban jungles of the big city, you can sport the most functional and best looking collars, leashes, and belts available on the market today.
The story behind Yamakami began when 2 cousins - one living in Japan and the other in Colorado - began collaborating on a line of mountaineering accessories that complimented their love of exploring the outdoors with their dogs. After creating a high quality line of belts, leashes, and collars intended to be stand alone products sold separately at outdoors shops and pet stores in Japan, the founders were surprised to receive numerous requests from people for a matching set of all 3 so that they could accessorize with their dogs.
They realized that no one else in the world was creating a set of matching accessories for man and dog, and they moved to rebrand the company to meet that demand.
