Store Introduction

Nagasaki is the only city that was allowed to trade with foreign countries during the 17th century, when Japan established a policy of seclusion under the Edo shogunate. Nagasaki accepted people and cultures from many countries, including Portugal, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. Nagasaki was rebuilt in spite of the sad history of atomic bombing in the 20th century, and now, it has become a city where rare cultures still exist in Japan. Since 2016, Nagasaki, Monaco, and Hong Kong have been recognized as the world’s three new major night views. A large number of tourists from home and abroad visit Nagasaki for its unique historical culture and scenic views.

Ishimaru Bunkoudou is a stationery department store founded in 1883 in Nagasaki, where various foreign cultures are mixed. The store with approximately 50,000 kinds of articles displayed from the basement to the sixth floor is the largest in Kyushu, and it boasts a prominence in the history of merchandise in Japan.

The store handles various products including the store’s original products, fountain pens and inks from home and abroad, excellent stationery made in Japan, traditional products from Kyoto and Nara, character products, postcards and magnets suitable for souvenirs from Nagasaki, good-quality containers and even foods from various areas in Nagasaki.
We provide a free name-engraving service for writing instruments at our own workshop. We also sell postage stamps so you can buy postcards and write on the spot to people you know.
We promise a rich and enjoyable experience for every visitor.
