Patrons of the art of Japanese antiques
Welcome to mingei arts. Our site is divided into two parts: the Discovery section, which is an introduction to Japanese antiques and folk art traditions, and, most important to the collector, our Shop, focusing on authentic objects from Japan. We encourage you to participate in our Discovery Blog by sharing your knowledge related to the various subjects, thus expanding the information available. By visiting our Shop (payments via PayPal) you will be able to find those authentic items not typically found outside Japan.
