Uragami Sokyudo is an art dealer specializing in Oriental antiques, and was established in April 1979 in Nihonbashi, Tokyo. Mitsuru Urakami, the founder and representative director, was born in 1951. After graduating from university, he joined the long-established antique art company ``Mayuyama Ryusendo.'' After training for five years, he became independent and opened ``Uragami Sokyudo'' in Nihonbashi 3-chome. We are celebrating our 45th anniversary this year. The shop name ``Sokyodo'' was named by the late author Masaaki Tatehara, and a handwritten plaque still hangs in the shop, and its origin is also written in an essay by Mr. Masaaki Tachihara. We mainly deal with old ceramics from China, the Korean Peninsula, and Japan, and also ukiyo-e (Katsushika Hokusai, etc.).

Since its opening, the gallery has organised and hosted numerous exhibitions, which have been widely acclaimed by collectors, museum professionals and artists alike, and have been frequently featured in art magazines and other media.

The exhibition catalogues we have produced each time have also received a high academic evaluation from researchers at home and abroad. The museum has also received many requests to cooperate and exhibit in exhibitions organised by museums in Japan. For example, in 1994, the museum cooperated in exhibiting 42 of the 343 pieces (including three national treasures and 30 important cultural properties) in the exhibition 'Chinese Ceramics' held at the Tokyo National Museum. Although primarily aimed at private collectors, the museum has also delivered many works to public and foundation museums, as well as to museums in the USA.

We have participated in the International Asian Art Fair in New York for 11 consecutive years, and in Japan we have participated in the Tokyo Bijutsu Club's Tobi Special Exhibition, Tobi Art Fair and Art Fair Tokyo (at Tokyo International Forum) every year.

Works: Chinese, Korean, Japanese ceramics and ukiyo-e prints.
