In the Fall of 1995, after moving back to Seattle from Tokyo, Binko and John Bisbee opened up a gallery and shop called KOBO in the historic Loveless Building, on Capitol Hill in Seattle. In 2004, Binko and John realized their dream of opening a second location of their artisan gallery in the historic Higo Variety Store. Both shops feature art, fine crafts, and design from Japan and the Northwest. Items are thoughtfully curated and include a variety of items from local artists and makers.

Bonus: Check out KOBO at their International District location!
