Welcome! We've opened this shop in the spirit of friendship, sharing and collaboration.
The three of us are longtime Kyoto residents and we each bring specific things to Kyoto Collection. Hiro and Sanae are calligraphers, with Sanae also well versed in graphic design. Gary brings his experiences as a freelance translator and student of Japanese.
This shop is a natural extension of our friendship and of our desire to share our passion for the Japanese language and the rich messages it so often conveys. We hope you'll enjoy browsing our selection of Japanese kanji calligraphy and other items from Kyoto!
