Art Gallery and Mounting Place :

Unsei-Do, the first generation of the Art Gallery and Mounting Place, opened its business in Ina-shi, Nagano, Japan in the Taisho period about 100 years ago.  The second and third generation succeeded to his father's business and now it is an award-winning, long-established Art Gallery and Mounting Place for 100 years.
Through years of wars and confrontations, we have guarded traditional mounting techniques of paintings.  With a support of patronage and customers, it is our pleasure that the second generation was awarded as a "Master-hand of Shinshu" in 1998.  This tradition will continue.

We thank you for your sincere support over the years.   With the intention of devoting ourselves to Japanese traditional culture, especially Japanese screens, we hope you will treasure the beauty of Japanese paintings.
