For traveling companions who love nature.

All the answers lie in the journey. Let's continue our journey in search of encounters with people and nature.

" Be careful, but don't be afraid."

With these words in mind, spend time with friends who understand and forgive each other.

Mountain climbing, skiing, traveling, and even life should all be the same.

If so, an unknown virus and an unknown slope should be the same.

All the answers are in the journeys. Keep Traveling to meet people and nature. " Take care, but be brave". With those words in mind, spend time with link-minded friends who can acknowledge and forgive each other. Mountaineering, skiing, traveling, and even life should be the same. Then, unknown virus or unknown slopes is exactly the same, right?

For fellow travelers in nature.

Who we are

Sputnik is a production company founded by a team of friends with over 20 years of experience in the outdoor industry in various fields such as brand sales, buyers, and shop managers.

We were playmates who loved outdoor activities and spent time exploring mountains all over the world, such as mountain climbing, skiing, kayaking, and camping. I want to propose to the world things and values ​​that I believe in. We continued to have such thoughts.

In 2017, he called out to his fellow travelers who had the same passion and started a project to connect people and things while traveling, thinking, ``Outdoor activities are like traveling, so wouldn't it be even more fun if we started doing it ourselves while traveling?'' It was launched and named ``Sputnik''.

Sputnik is the name of the former Soviet Union's artificial satellite, which became the first human to fly into space in the late 1950s. The original meaning of the word is ``accompanied'' in Russian, but it later came to mean ``fellow traveler,'' and was given to the artificial satellite that orbits the Earth.

We also want to create and disseminate new values ​​in the outdoor world, and connect all kinds of mountain-related friends in Japan and overseas as "traveling companions." I put that meaning into it.

Currently, as an official brand import agent, we carry out brand retail operations at 250 stores across Japan and provide consulting services for domestic brands and retailers, while continuing our journey of play and exploration throughout Japan and around the world. I am. In our shop, we introduce new outdoor culture that we have encountered through such travels.

What we do

Sputnik Co., Ltd. imports and sells European and American outdoor sports brands. We have concluded exclusive importer and exclusive distributorship agreements in Japan with each brand sold at our Sputnik Shop, and our products can be purchased at 250 outdoor shops across Japan.

In addition, we utilize our many years of experience in the outdoor industry to provide consulting services for brands and retailers.
