Bunkado: Gifts and Music

New and traditional Japanese toys

While Tokio’s initial vision for the store was that of an artist compound of sorts, the store now offers a greater array of merchandise. Bunkado has a section dedicated to toys and Irene fondly recalls playing with these toys with her sister while she was growing up. But there is a sophistication to these toys and trinkets that is often overlooked. Irene has a contract with a local Little Tokyo artist who composes origami sculptures out of dollar bills. One of his designs of a fish is highly sought after, and occasionally informed customers remark on his exceptional skill.
