Kobo at Higo

Long time Seattlites will remember Higo on Jackson in the International District. It was the first family owned Japanese Variety store in Seattle, founded in the early 1900's. It moved to it's location on Jackson in the 30's and was open until a few years ago. It was one of the last Japanese owned businesses from the pre-war era. Well, a group of artists have moved into Higo and have started Kobo at Higo. Kobo is Japanese for "artist's workspace". The large gallery space focuses on artisans whose work has a Japanese aesthetic. You should check it out if you find yourself in the I.D.
