Japanese tansu are much more than items of Japanese furniture. Extraordinary and versatile wooden cabinetry, tansu date as far back as 7th-century Japan and represent a rich folk heritage unique in the world. Although created primarily for function and portability, Japanese furniture reflects equally the masterful craftsmanship and aesthetic sensibility found in the finest Japanese art and design. Jtansu offers one of the widest selections of high-quality tansu and Asian furniture and furnishings online.
