Art Postcard Gallery and Shop KYOTO BENRIDO
Postcard shop transmits Japanese culture and art
Founded in1887 in Kyoto, Benrido has been contributing to inheritance of Japanese culture through the photo shooting, making prints and publications of cultural properties.
Art work motif postcards are the products we have been making since 1902. Even though it’s just a piece of post card, we are always keen to reproduce original colors and to put the charms of an original work in it as much as possible.
At our stores, you find, besides postcards, varieties of products including folding fans, standing screens and scrolls which are great as souvenirs of Japan, and also Benrido original collotype prints of works of contemporary photographers.
