    Seikodo Nakajima

    Beautifully detailed Japanese mounting works by the washi Japanese paper experts

    This shop offers hyogu, or Japanese mounting works such as kakejiku (Japanese scroll paintings), fusuma (sliding door panels), shoji (sliding door with thin paper) and byobu (Japanese folding screens with decorative painting and calligraphy).  The first owner of the shop became independent and started calling his shop Seikodo Nakajima after receiving training at Nakagawa Seikodo.  They are one of the craftspeople appointed by the Urasenke tea ceremony master.  Being a distinguished Japanese mounting shop, they work for renowned places such as Kyoto’s long-standing Japanese style inn, Tawaraya.  They also absorb modern inspiration to their works from the younger craft people such as the third owner of the shop.  At the same time, they retain the first class technique from their traditional way of making mounting items. Seikodo Nakajima presents the beautiful and charming mounting culture, which can also be matched to a modern life style.
