The district of Nihonbashi, in the east of central Tokyo, is home to around 150 dealers in antiques, classical art, crafts, Japanese-style paintings, sculptures and prints. Most, however, have managed to sustain themselves on the dedicated patronage of a few wealthy collectors and well-connected dealers, and therefore haven’t needed to worry about catering to the masses.

The new Tokyo Art & Antiques is an event that shows just how much things have changed. Half of Nihonbashi’s dealers have agreed to participate in the three-day event, which is designed specifically to open their trade to a wider audience.
