Description

”Genkido Books: 9th Floor Ancient Writings Section” is in Kanda, Ogawamachi surrounded by sporting goods shops and neighboring Jinbocho, known for its secondhand bookstores and close vicinity to the Imperial Palace.

Although it started out as a curio shop, Genkido Books now features a wide variety of art and ancient writings, from samurai letters, ukiyoe prints, and woodblock art, to original Japanese and Chinese paintings.

Our reasonably-priced hanging scrolls have been especially popular as Japanese style souvenirs.

Products on the first floor include books of paintings from Japan and abroad, technical arts, structures, and photo albums.

And to take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, we recommend a trip to the ninth floor, where we offer simple lessons on how to properly receive and drink Japanese green tea. Feel free to ask about this (although the person in charge may not be available in some cases).


We also have a photo catalog available, and will purchase old writings or books from customers on occasion.

■ Our shop is located along Yasukuni-dori Street.
