About Bankohdoh

We are a retail store that wants to convey Japan’s history, traditions and art. In Japan there are traditions cultivated since age-old times, stories about great man that were active during the shifting times, and artists that crated astonishing masterpieces. We hope to help conceive something unseen by letting the people living in the present know about these stories.
Bankohdoh’s owner and photographer Takashi Kuriyama has been travelling to assorted local regions throughout Japan, learning about the history unique to the territory and capturing the landscape. Bankohdoh handles articles that were developed inspired by the items that he has come across while travelling or historical stories that he has discovered.
