Cabbages & Roses Shop visited by
British Minister of State, Jeremy Brown
Last Monday, Jeremy Brown, the British Minister of State at the Foreign and Commonwealth office, visited our little shop in Daikanyama. He was visiting Tokyo in the wake of the earthquake in March, which caused such devastation in Japan. His mission, organised by the British Embassy in Tokyo, was to investigate British companies who, in spite of the unfortunate events, have managed to thrive. Cabbages & Roses opened as scheduled one week after the earthquake and in the face of adversity, has enjoyed much success and was singled out as one such enterprise. He was proudly received by our ‘Tokyo Roses’ and enjoyed a little patch of England in the Japanese streets. Commenting on the authenticity and old fashioned Britishness of the brand, he wished us all much luck for our future with our Japanese partners.
