History of Nishiura Ryokusuido



Founded in Tokyo in 1919



Nishiura Ryokusuido was opened as "Nishiura Art Store" in Sasazuka, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo in 1919, when NISHIURA, Renhachi went to Tokyo from Tajimi City, Gifu Prefecture.
Before that, he actively produced and sold art ceramics in Tajimi City and introduced local artists and their works, expanding his activities overseas, such as Edo and Osaka, and opening stores in Boston and New York. However, even in the policy of sticking to things called art production and sales, we could not survive the recession, and the activity ended at the same time as the Meiji era ended.
Even so, the road of art works was not thrown away, and NISHIURA, Renhachi and Shunichi father and son opened Nishiura art shop in Sasazuka, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, and started selling mainly paintings and calligraphy writings. 3rd generation NISHIURA, Hachiro changed to the business centered on appreciating ceramics, and the company name was changed to "Nishiura Ryokusuido", then the shop was moved to the present-day location in Aoyama, Minato-ku, Tokyo. Thanks to the patronage and guidance of many customers, as the company name "Ryokusui" means, we were able to get a lot of art works and relationships with customers like a beautiful flow of water.

In 2002, NISHIURA, Kihachiro succeeded the fourth generation to the present day.
