Established in 2011, STUDIO UAMOU is mainly known in the vinyl toy scene for its endless variety of colourful UAMOU and BOO figures, the studio shop also carries a wide variety of fashionable items, such as pocket mirrors, bags and more. On occasion the studio transforms from a shop into an art gallery or even a live music venue. STUDIO UAMOU has worked on various collaborations including BEAMS, TSUBURAYA PRODUCTIONS, HAKONE OPEN AIR MUSEUM and many others. Come find the studio shop at 2K540 AKI-OKA ARTISAN near Akihabara station, we’re open from 11:00 till 19:00 (closed on Wednesdays).


Ayako Takagi’s goal is to expand the world of UAMOU through picture books, figures, animation and jewellery, bridging the gap between the character movement and art/design. From a young age she was greatly influenced by her parents who were both jewellers. Growing up in a creative environment, Ayako had always been interested in drawing and making things. Whilst studying in London she started making and selling UAMOU products throughout Europe. After graduating from Camberwell College of Arts she moved back to Japan where she is working as an artist and designer on the international stage.

Ayako loves toys, chocolate and cats (but is also fond of dogs) and you can find her on twitter.
