The historical Beniya Antique Shop is more than 150 years old, and is located near popular tour spots in Kamakura such as Hasedera Temple and Kotokuin Temple. We have a large inventory of products available, including Ukiyo-e Kakejiku, ceramics, lacquer ware, iron kettles, Chinese art, and more.
Whether they are used for ornamental or practical purposes, antiques bring us one step closer to a country's customs and culture.

Of course, we also offer fine works of art for those interested in high-end products.
When touring Kamakura, I hope you'll drop by our historical shop, which is actually the oldest in town. I'm sure you'll find that special product to serve as a great memory of your trip. We are confident you'll be satisfied.

5.KOBIJUTSUSASAKI

5.KOBIJUTSUSASAKI

In addition to being beautiful, antiquities also provide a mysterious appeal in that they ‘capture a time’. Holding them in your hands, gazing at them, and even using them for a practical purpose creates a connection to people and moments stretching over a long time. That joy is almost tangible.
We collect the pieces we like not to sell, but to have them close by, even for just a little while.
However, these pieces end up leaving our stores very quickly.
When this happens, we think about how being used by somebody they like must make the object feel happy too.
We spend our days trying to share this happiness with as many customers as possible.
Kobijutsu Sasaki engages in a variety of additional activities, including tea ceremony classes and culture classes run by the owners.
We also buy calligraphy, curios, art objects, and items from estate sales and storage, so please feel free to enquire.
We can also make appraisement calls on Sundays and holidays on request.

6.Hattori Bijutsuten

6.Hattori Bijutsuten

Our sword shop is located in Nihonbashi, close to Tokyo Station's Yaesu Exit.
We started dealing in swords and related merchandise some 150 years ago.
Although these swords were originally used by samurai warriors in ancient Japan, today they are recognized for their artistic value, spiritual significance, and various historical elements. Although many are nearly 1,000 years old, they still maintain their luster.
Our sword-related equipment also offers a great deal of artistic merit and intricate detail packed into limited space. These works of art are a testament to the skill of ancient Japanese artisans, and are often referred to as the basis of Japan's emergence as a technology-driven nation.
From works of art with hundreds of years of history, to items made in modern times with the same techniques used long ago, we carry a diverse range of sword-related products you may want to handle.
We also offer sword polishing, crafting, selling, appraisal, and care services.
Feel free to ask any question you may have.
We are a small shop, but we hope you'll drop in sometime.
