For nearly three decades, Kazuo Kuwabara, the sole proprietor of Oriental
Treasure Box, has been in the business of acquiring and selling fine
Japanese antiques and works of art by the best contemporary artists. In September 2011 his gallery was
relocated to its current Kettner Blvd. location in the Little Italy
art & design district of San Diego. He started his business in the Cracker Factory Building
Antique Center in downtown where he had been for over twenty-two years.
After five years in the Ocean Beach area he is pleased to return to the downtown area in North Little Italy. In addition to fine Japanese antiques, the gallery's inventory include the
works of many of Japan's finest traditional and modern artists, personally
selected by Kazuo who travels to Japan many times a year to find more
treasures to add to his collection. Our customers frequently remark that
we are very much like a museum and are surprised to find masterpieces by
even Japanese Living National Treasures available at the gallery. We
invite you to come and visit our gallery or surf our website often. If we
can assist you with any of our treasures, please do not hesitate to
contact us via e-mail or telephone. We look forward to hearing from you.
