Kofukuan Japanese Antique Shop (Machida, Tokyo) – For Serious Collectors!

Kofukuan Japanese Antique Shop BestLivingJapanIf you are looking for that special Japanese antique piece for your home than head to Kofukuan Japanese Antique Shop. Although it is a bit of a hike (about 60 mins) from downtown Tokyo, you will not regret the effort. Kofukuan has the largest selection of Japanese antiques that I have seen in one retail location. Their Machida 1,150 square meter warehouse has two floors stocked full of Japanese tansu (chests), warehouse doors, Japanese house fittings (screens, lights, windows, sliding doors, etc.) and many collectable items (statues, dishes, stone garden ornaments, etc.). For a lover of Japanese antiques, like me, visiting their store is like a child in a candy shop. They also have a smaller store in Hachiouji, but if you are looking for selection you need to head out to Kofukuan Japanese Antique Shop BestLivingJapanMachida.

If you love Antiques, you must visit some of our favorite Japan antique markets and flea markets.

I have been searching for a large Kura door (warehouse door) to make into a coffee table, and Kofukuan had over 30 that would be perfect. The decision on which to choose is very difficult since all are so beautiful. Once I choose, they will have the legs added, and glass cut.

Kofukuan specializes in antique chests and Japanese fittings that are typically about 100 years old. They are experts on restoring the antiques to a beautiful condition, and can tell you quite a bit about the history and craftsmanship of each piece.

Kofukuan Japanese Antique Shop BestLivingJapanThey offer very convenient shipping and delivery services, restoration services and even advise on how to use the antiques and/or coordinate with other items in your homes. Some of the store staff speak English, which can be handy.

Kofukuan also has a great English website where they sell much of their inventory. Start looking online and then plan a trip to Machida!  Also, if you are looking for other Japanese craft and art decor items for your home https://bestlivingjapan.com/category/shop-serve/antiques-art-and-crafts/.
