Description

Established 240 years ago in Kawagoe, Fukazen is a store steeped in history and perfect for all your Japanese fine-art needs. While Tokyo is referred to as “Edo”, Kawagoe is likewise affectionately referred to as “Koedo” or “Little Edo.” One of the precious remaining buildings from the Edo period, with its original style shop façade, even today it’s business as usual. In recent years Kawagoe has seen more and more foreign visitors and we aim to make their visit to our shop as pleasurable as possible. Foreign customers tend to be especially interested in pictures set in either hanging scrolls, or shikishi (a special kind of traditional, colored, square-shaped paper). The shopkeeper’s wife speaks English (TOIEC intermediate level) and the shopkeeper himself speaks both English and Chinese, so foreign visitors are well taken care of. In the store there is a Japanese style room which is exactly the same as it was a long time ago. A photo shooting service is available, with the room being used as a backdrop. This is especially recommended if you happen to be wearing a kimono. Please come and enjoy our shop, which is rich in Japanese atmosphere, and truly cherishes the spirit of Japanese peace and harmony.
