Bunkado Lanters

Bunkado can boast of serving a whole laundry list of famous clients. Bunkado’s extensive décor section (the authentic lanterns, curtains, intricately designed dishes and wall art) attract set designers from theatre, film and t.v. Irene explains that “being in the rolodex” of t.v.’s set designers is very lucrative and exciting. Bunkado’s wares have starred in many notable movies: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles the Movie, Karate Kid, Austin Powers, 2 Fast 2 Furious, and innumerable commercials. Bunkado's merchandise even made it into a stage production of Madame Butterfly for the NY state opera.

Like many of her professional clients from the film industry, many of Bunkado’s customers come from out of state. The extensive and comprehensive array of art, cultural paraphernalia, toys and music draws japanophiles and shoppers from around the states. To keep this expanding clientele happy, Irene has decided to construct an online catalogue so that they can buy online.
