Bunkado: Gifts and Music


Bunkado's famous music collection

Irene jokes that all of the employees of Bunkado are women, and most of Japanese descent. Japanese is often the language of choice among the employees and between employees and clients. As a part of Irene’s distancing herself from the Japanese community, she rarely spoke Japanese during young adulthood and didn’t value it as an asset. Irene now thinks being able to speak Japanese is invaluable, and its implications for the stores success are incalculable. It is also a social vehicle, which brings her closer to her community as well.
