The story of the Shogun's Gallery from hobby to corporation and Portland landmark began at PSU where students Jim King and Kimiko Okada received degrees. They later moved to Japan and created various enterprises including an international modeling agency with over 100 models, an English school with 600 students, and finally Shogun's Gallery.   Shogun's Gallery started as a hobby and a love for artifacts from Japan's Meiji and Edo Eras and escalated into a corporation bringing to Portland every aspect of Japanese culture from Kabuki to tea ceremony. Jim King, Shogun's founder, brings you the story of Shogun's Gallery from its infancy in Japan to its current state and beyond.
