HOUBI-DOH Japanese hanko workshop

We will make you your own personalized hanko, which is a traditional Japanese stamp.

Houbi-doh is a hanko workshop that has been open for more than 50 years.
In Japan, a hanko is a personal seal used as identification in various situations in place of a signature.
For example, if you want to open a new bank account at bank in Japan, the use of a hanko will be required.
We can make you your own personalized hanko at our shop. We can write your name in Japanese characters (kanji or katakana), and make you a truly unique stamp seal.
They also serve as great gifts and souvenirs from your time in Japan.
