Kiku Imports has brought the beauty of Japanese antiques and tansu to appreciative customers in the U.S. and beyond since 1988. We specialize in Japanese furniture (tansu), and carry a wide selection of antique folk crafts, lacquer-ware, textiles, dolls, ceramics, screens, scrolls, and basketry. As one of America's largest direct importers of antiques from Japan. Kiku Imports offers an impressive selection of beautiful items at very reasonable prices.

All of our tansu are unique. Most were made between 1870 and 1930. Each tansu is carefully and thoroughly restored. Our workshop in San Francisco employs dedicated craftsmen who bring the beauty and functionality of antique tansu back to life. Our extensive selection can accommodate a wide range of budgets. While we do carry exquisite museum quality items, many of our tansu are surprisingly affordable.

About a year ago, Kiku Imports Japanese Tansu & Antiques moved from its SF location near Japantown to San Carlos near the CalTrain station which is about 25 miles south of its former location. The new location is a warehouse and it is only open on Saturdays. They are still importing great antiques from Japan - just not as often... More

If you're looking for a great shopping idea - Kiku Imports on Sutter at Franklin, has some really nice items direct from Japan. Prices are good and the quality is terrific. Unique shopping in the Pacific Heights and Nob Hill neighborhoods - just on the edge of Japantown. FYI - they are closed on Mondays.

Staying in Mission District

Neighbourhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighbourhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighbourhoods in the country.
