Hello and welcome to the Toshidama Gallery blog. We’ve been dealing privately in 18th and 19th century Japanese prints for a while and felt that it was the right time to have a gallery online, and with as much access as possible. The new site will be open on the 5th of October. We’ll be having exhibitions with works for sale, videos, a shop for cards and such like and as time goes by, an archive and catalogue archive so please visit the gallery, enjoy what you see and purchase a work of art if you see something that you like or that intrigues you. E-mail us if you have a question about something or follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Youtube or Myspace.

We want to make this extraordinary, magical, world as open to as many people as possible. We don’t want to be stuffy or unwelcoming at all… art can seem off-putting and difficult but we want to show you that you can invest, however modestly, in original artwork, at reasonable cost, that brings with it history, uniqueness and a window onto a world that is unimaginable to us now.

We look forward to seeing you. Unlike most Japanese print galleries online, we have a secure payment gateway. We want the experience of seeing, of enjoying and of purchasing to be as straightforward as possible.

This print above is by Utagawa Kuniyoshi and comes from his Stories of True Loyalty of the Faithful Samurai. This piece is featured in the forthcoming Utagawa show and the series will be discussed on this blog very soon.
