Kanban

Traditional Shop Signs Of Japan

A fusion of art, design and commerce, kanban refers to traditional signs that Japanese merchants displayed to advertise and give identity and expression to their shops. From carved scenes of carp climbing waterfalls to images of seductive courtesans with painted faces, "Kanban" provides a rare opportunity to figuratively walk and shop the streets of Japan.
