High-end furniture shop which served the imperial family
During the Meiji period (1868-1912), the Empress of that time discovered a beautiful shelf made using the sashimono technique (traditional Japanese wood box-making technique without nails) while visiting Kyoto. She was immediately infatuated by its beauty and bought many sashimono items from this manufacturer – this was Miyazaki. In later years, Miyazaki expanded their field into general furniture manufacturing. They were appointed as the provider of wedding furniture for one of the imperial family members in 1940 and later, in 1968, they supplied their furniture and room design for the imperial family when they constructed new buildings in the imperial grounds in Tokyo. Their new branch shop opened in 2006 with an interior designed by Mr.Hisanobu Tsujimura. Excellent drawers using the sashimono technique with paulownia wood along with a wide selection of fine quality furniture is on display.
