    SHINYA

    Antique shop telling you the history of Japanese art

    SHINYA is specialized in Japanese antique items from the Meiji (1868-1912), Taisho (1912-1926) and early Showa (1926-1988) periods featuring paintings, metal crafts, cloisonné, lacquer, wood and bamboo crafts.  “After the Meiji period, Japanese arts and crafts were largely influenced by western culture.  While experiencing drastic change, Japanese artists still retained a sense of beauty that is particular to Japan,” the owner, Shin-ya Okunishi, says.  Many of the items in his gallery are not defined as antique (less than 100 years old) but his collection attracts many antique fans.  From gorgeous metal crafts from Art Deco to novel ceramic works from the mid-Showa period, you will be surprised at the diversity of the collection.  However, what they all have in common is the high design sense.  Many foreign customers visit SHINYA to look for a new piece for their collection.
