Bunkado: Gifts and Music


Original Bunkado store front circa the 1940's

This is the original interior of Bunkado, started by Tokio and Suye Ueyama in 1945. Tokio envisioned a store where art items, like special Japanese papers and brushes for calligraphy and paintings, could be sold. Being Buddhist, items for altars, such as incense, were also sold. What is so special about Bunkado is that these sorts of items are still sold today, which moves customers - some of whom have been coming to the store since its opening - to call Bunkado a "retro store" because it has remained unchanged in character.
