Established in 1976 at the East Gate of Shinjuku Station in Tokyo, Kakiden Gallery primarily exhibits and sells ceramics. In 2008, 32 years after its opening, the gallery relocated to the basement of the Yasuyo Building (a National Registered Tangible Cultural Property) located next to Shinjuku Station, as a gallery where adults can enjoy a leisurely stroll in Shinjuku. It was designed by the late interior designer Yukio Hashimoto, featuring an elegant Japanese modern style. The gallery provides a calm atmosphere where visitors can quietly enjoy a conversation with the artworks. While focusing on tea ware for tea ceremony, the gallery also exhibits ceramics, lacquerware, textiles, and metalwork. Driven by the owner’s passion to introduce as many artists from across Japan as possible, the gallery hosts numerous exhibitions throughout the year.
