On Shushuken Website, we will introduce “Traditional Industries” in Kyoto from various aspects.
Even in traditional city Kyoto, the number of people who engages in such industries has been decreasing nowadays and it causes industrial decline.
Therefore, we create this website to activate traditional industries.

It is said that “Traditions are accomplished by uninterrupted innovations” or “Traditions are results of accumulated innovations”. Skills of Traditional Arts and Crafts in present day have been passed down from generation to generation since the capital was moved to Heian-kyo (Kyoto) in 794. It is no exaggeration to say that it is the compilation of Japanese culture, literally “results of accumulated innovations”.
Not only introduce such products, but we would like to also develop new products and service adding new aspects and designs on them. It’s our pleasure to support and pass the Japanese traditional culture to the future though our business.
