The Usami Shuutokudou Corporation
is a company that restores Oriental books, documents, prints,
and works of art using traditional techniques based on the
art of Kyoto-style picture mounting. It was established
in September of 2006 as a separate company from Usami Shokakudo,
which has over 220 years of experience in this field.
As the second son of the 8th president of the Usami Shokakudo
Corporation, I was raised from a young age with an understanding
of the aesthetics and techniques of Kyoto-style picture
mounting. While working in Usami Shokakudo Corporation's
workshop in the Kyoto National Museum's Cultural Assets
Restoration Centre, I gained invaluable experience preserving
and restoring designated cultural assets.
While preserving the traditional skills of Kyoto-style picture
mounting, and using the restoration techniques I have learnt
in my long career, I am dedicated to giving the best service
and peace of mind to all my customers.
