The development of Internet culture has allowed us to easily obtain the information of artworks and purchase them no matter where we are. However, we offer our visitors to actually touch and feel our artworks. You can purchase your favorite piece on the spot.
Tobi Shofudakai is the massive semi-annual sale that is held on the first Saturday and Sunday of July and December every year. About 10,000 artworks are exhibited, including tea paraphernalia and paintings.
Although there are many antique events held in several places today, Tobi Shofudakai has been supported by art collectors for more than half a century since it began in 1952, shortly after the end of WWII.
The admission is free, and our prices start at 20,000 yen. We would love to invite all of those who are already familiar with artworks, those who are thinking about starting an art collection, and those who are interested in art but don’t know where to start.
Receive the “Sold” tag from the event staff near you.
Feel free to walk around the hall and enjoy the exhibition.
When you find your favorite piece, leave the “Sold” tag there and pick up the “Purchase bill” next to the piece.
Please give your “Purchase bill” to the association member as soon as possible.
Start negotiations with the exhibitor. ※Please make sure to finish the negotiations within 2 hours.
Please feel free to ask any questions to our staff. ※ Our staff are wearing a staff armband.
During the exhibition, we host our popular charity auction at the first floor lobby. About 60 to 70 pieces are exhibited each time. Anybody can bid from the lowest price 10,000 yen.
※The profit from our charity auction will be donated through the NHK Public Welfare Organization.
