Hey Tokyo artists,

I am looking for some irregular size frames to present my work at an exhibition.
Does anyone know some place in Tokyo where I could find it?
Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Great question, Yulia! I think this could be useful for other members too!

I've used a place down the road from our office in Shibuya on Miyamasuzaka for custom frames. It's called Uematsu. Can't say how they compare to other options I'm afraid, but I was happy with their service.

I can't find a website for them right now I'm afraid, but here's some map links:

Thank you Mark,

I also got some recommendations from different sources, just in case I post it here, maybe it will be helpful for someone else )

But the most popular options are Sekaido in Shinjuku or Tokyu Hands

I'm not sure what your budget is, but http://atelier.aflo.com/en/framing.html does amazing printing and museum quality framing. You might want to check out to see if it is in your price range.

Great service and Matsudaira-san speaks English as well.

You may know this already, but the ultimate art supplies store is Sekaido in Shinjuku, and they do all sorts of frames:

They are not cheap, but I think a little less costly than Tokyu Hands.
Yuzawaya in the Kichijoji station building (8th floor) is more reasonable but less selection.
Lastly, a great online store for acrylic frames at reasonable prices (at least for their standard sizes):
