    Sansei-do

    “Just loving beautiful objects” - A shop specializing in art and crafts

    Sansei-do is located on the slope leading up to Kiyomizu-dera Temple.  They are specialized in art nouveau glassware and traditional Japanese crafts.  The shop owner, who is also a sculptor, started his shop with the motto, “I just love beautiful objects.”  Indeed, every art piece displayed in his shop is so detailed and carefully created by hand.  Incredibly fine works of obi-dome (broach for obi sash for kimono), broaches, rings and hair ornaments are testimony to the sophisticated handiworks of Japanese craftsmen.  His selection of obi-dome particularly attracts fans due to the glazing color and delicate artifices.  They also accept custom-made orders for obi-dome.
