About us

Our company was born from our great love and respect for Japanese art.

Our work is driven by the great passion we have for this unique and amazing world.

After starting in 2012 as collectors, we decided in February 2, 2015 to open our own company and a small show-room, as well as to work with small and big Auction Houses.

 

Since many collectors inquired about the item prices by email and telephone, we decided that from 2018 we will post the item price info directly on our website.

In addition, we will also give information about our items and prices by email.

Nevertheless, as lovers of Fine Japanese Art, we always suggest collectors to fix an appointment at our show-room to see in person what they want to buy.

 

From 2018 we will also display our collection at different Fine Japanese Art events and fairs around the World, from Europe to America. We decided that during these events we will make a very special price for our items.

Cause of the many emails received for info on items with Price on request, in 2019 we will display also the prices of those items directly on our website.

 

We are always busy finding more genuine and interesting items, with limited restorations, and by any means in a way that do not ruin the beauty of the ancient times.

Our items are certified by N.B.T.H.K. and N.K.B.K.H.K., and all certificates have been translated in English.

Most of our items have ranks as N.B.T.H.KHozonN.B.T.H.K. Tokubetsu HozonN.B.T.H.K. Jūyō or N.K.B.K.H.K. Kōshu Tokubetsu Kichō Shiryō.

 

We collect & deal only pure and genuine items and we are always looking for the highest quality, but we have many different prices to give the possibility to new collectors of Fine Japanese Art to start a new amazing passion step by step.

We also sell sword-replica and ornamental modern items of Japanese art.

We trust in honesty and in the philosophy that made the Samurai so famous in the entire world, as a unique elite of warriors that will always be remembered.

 

We work with the following professional experts of Japanese Art:
