Established in 2001 in Honolulu, Hawaii, by Matthew J. Shim, mahjongtiles™ was created to help players, collectors, tile hunters/traders, and other mahjong enthusiasts with their 'quest' to find that lost, missing or spare tile.
There is no 'physical' storefront or museum to visit, only the website. mahjongtiles™ is currently located in the small town of Lawai, Hawaii on the Island of Kauai. Previous locations included Honolulu, Hawaii; San Antonio, Texas; Houston, Texas; and Albuquerque, New Mexico.
mahjongtiles™ is the largest (and maybe the only) web-based searchable tile repository with over 150 tile sets and over 20,000 individual mahjong tiles.
As the name suggests, mahjongtiles™ is all about mahjong tiles. This is NOT a commercial site specializing in complete mahjong games or mahjong tile sets (although some complete sets are occasionally available for sale).
Here you will find antique, vintage, retro and/or modern mahjong tiles in our tile repository. These tiles and tile sets are mostly used and often incomplete. Since we do not manufacture any tiles, the tiles you find in the repository are all that we have.
