About Shippodo Gallery
ABOUT SHIPPODO GALLERY
Shippodo was founded with the goal of providing the world unique, interesting, or beautiful Japanese paintings and bring the appeal Japanese hanging scrolls have into the modern home. For nearly 500 years Japanese hanging scrolls have defined the interior decoration of a Japanese home evoking nature, literature and sensibilities of the owner within the space of a room.
However, with modern architecture and interior design, the hanging scroll has become endangered of being lost as a relic of Japan's past.
We at Shippodo hope to revive the tradition of the Japanese hanging scroll and be able to use this traditional element of interior decoration into the modern home. The Shippodo collection is not limited to Japanese paintings but also has a wide range of tea (matcha based) utensils, Japanese wood furniture, ceramics, lacquerware, Chinese works, modern art and specific items you are interested in. If you have further inquiries please feel free to let us know.
