I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all. Kasugai Kyoto Co. Ltd. is a gallery that specializes in introducing Japanese arts, crafts, and architecture to Russians.
We also assist Japanese firms and individuals looking to expand their businesses to Russia, and we are always looking to adapt to new methods in order to serve our customers in the best manner. Furthermore, through voluntary activities, we aim to develop and improve alongside our customers and local residents, as we believe that the growth of our company is the fundamental step towards assisting our customers.
Our company also helps with introducing Japanese artists to Russian people by assisting to host exhibitions, helping with artwork sales, cataloging the artwork, and importing/exporting craft materials. We hope that sharing and discovering both cultures lead to new connections, and contributes to the development of both cultures.
Kasugai-Kyoto Inc. is a gallery aimed to introduce the excellence of Japanese culture through arts, crafts, and architecture, with the primary audience being Russians. Established in the year of 2016 on Sanzen-in street, our motto is to “Connect Japan and Russia through arts and crafts”.
Though Russian arts and crafts may not be common in Japan, there are many excellent works of art that is inspired from Russian culture. Works such as crafts of Peter Carl Fabergé, outstanding paintings, and Lacquer art are starting to spread in Japan and attracting many Japanese people. Similarly, there are many people from Russia who are interested in Japanese culture. Paintings, metalworks, ceramics, and architecture created under the unique sense of Japanese beauty is praised and respected beyond borders. Our firm also assists with introducing works of Japanese art to Russians, through a wide-range of activities including assisting exhibitions in Russian museums, creating catalogs, and exporting crafting materials.
The name of our company, “Kasugai”, originates from the Japanese saying, “子は鎹/かすがい – ko-wa-kasugai”, meaning that a child is figuratively the crucial “clamp” that connects people together. We hope that sharing and discovering cultures from both countries lead to new connections, and contributes to the development of both cultures.
