Intriguing spot
Feb 2020
I dropped in to look at the artist's work, and to watch him at work. His dragon paintings are quite beautiful. They can be custom made to have a special kanji symbol as well as colours and size. Unfortunately, I could only look as I had no space in my house for more paintings! Otherwise I'd have bought something.

Beautiful custom made Dragon Art
Oct 2019
If you want a unique souvenir from Japan then I can highly recommend the Dragon Art. There are several different styles of Dragon's that can be customized by selecting the size, orientation, main dragon colour with either gold or silver accents, and a choice of Kanji phrases, that the artist will paint while you watch - photos and videos are welcomed! - After 15-20 minutes he will have produced a stunning unique piece of very affordable art. You have the option of having it framed, or if space is an issue provided as a scroll for framing when returning home (the custom framing to do it justice will be more expensive than the artwork!). I loved them so much that I purchased two, one for me and one as a present for friends.

Personal service quality hand made product
Oct 2018 • Couples
Visited this store after seeing reviews on Tripadvisor and was not disappointed. Received quick service despite having numerous orders to complete. The range, size and colours to choose from regarding your art work was more than enough. They are hand drawn and can be personalised with a choice of local symbols (meaning ie, harmony, spirit, good fortune etc). The art was personally delivered to our hotel at night and did not disappoint. If you what something from Nikko, hand painted and very reasonably priced, this is the item for you.

Great artwork, lovely and friendly people

As soon as we opened the entrance door we were greeted by a lovely lady who helped us choose our design. When we returned later on in the day to pick up our dragon artwork, we watched the artwork get carefully packaged and sealed which made the whole experience even better. Thank you for your amazing artwork!

You have to go see him he is amazing. He can draw a dragon in 15 min. Second time i go there. I had to come back to buy his paintings. This visit is worth the trip to Nikko in itself.

Long awaited visit to Nikko's dragon painter. For ¥2500 you can have your own small dragon painted, with kanji of your choice, in around 15 minutes. Prices go up depending on size and framing. Our double dragon (¥5500) took about 30 mins and was fantastic to watch it being created. A 10-15 minute walk from JR Nikko station and well worth the trip to Nikko alone.

是非お立ち寄りを (Just pay a visit)
Nov 2015 • Family
その場で、描いて頂けます。幾つもカタログが有り、色などを選択できます。額縁もあり、丁寧に梱包して下さいます。約30分位で、出来上がり。最初に注文してからお食事、観光などをして戻ってくれば出来上がりです。各種のカードが使えました。
お時間がない場合は、出来上がったものから選べますが、折角ですので、その場で描いて頂いた方が宜しいです。
When you are in NIKKO,pay a visit to the KOUSHUUYA. The Artist paint wonderful Dragons right in front of you. You are also able to choose the colour and Motiv. It makes a very good present or Keep it for yourself as a lasting memory.
