Seikado was established here in Kyoto in 1838 (Edo Period) as a pewterer and presently, we are the only pewter art craft speciality shop in Japan. Our 7th owner has devoted himself to making pewter arts as well as running exhibitions displaying a wide range of Japanese metal arts. The gallery introduces contemporary craftsmen.( not open on a regular basis. )
Although historically, Kyoto pewter crafts were originally developed and made available to only the upper classes, we have been endeavoring to design something which is equally in keeping with modern times as it is in maintaining respect for our traditional heritage. The next time you pay a visit to Kyoto, be sure to experience and share with us such distinctive Japanese beauty.
