Keiyudoh is a book store specializing in rare art books, with a small gallery in the back. Currently the gallery features an exhibition of calligraphy by Sueo Akiyama, a self-taught artist, whose works have received cultural awards in Poland and France recently. Keiyudoh also publishes the journal Le Carrosse d’Or.

Keiyudoh was founded by Teruo Sugimoto, a former engineer, in the fall of 1999. It has built up a network of repeat customers, largely through word of mouth. Sugimoto started off collecting Akutagawa Award winners, such as Kenji Maruyama and Akira Abe. His taste in the arts extends to Surrealism.
