Creating new possibilities for people and offices

Since Bunshodo’s founding in 1912 as an office-related general trading company, we’ve been creating new possibilities for people and offices, guided by our mission to be a professional organization that pleases customers with the value it creates.
Providing multifaceted support for offices and the people who work in them is always a priority, and we keep up with the rapidly changing world of business in the diverse services we offer, including office supplies , office design, movable racks , IT services, eco-friendly products, and more.
Recently, we have begun offering real estate brokerage services, helping customers find office space that fits their work style. Thanks to over 100 years of being business and the experiences we’ve earned in our dealings with numerous clients, we are ideally positioned to grow together with our customers.
We look forward to providing you with the same high level of service.
