About Me
This is the website for my coin business, called Eikyu Tsuho (pronounced a-q-soo-ho), located in Issaquah, Washington, to buy and sell Japanese cast and struck (mainly Meiji and Taisho, and some early Showa) coinage. I also blog to inform people about the fascinating world of Japanese coins. See my blog at or by clicking on the Blog link in the navigation bar. View my coins for sale here or via the link in the naviagtion bar.

How to Browse The Japanese Coins for Sale/Inventory
See my Japanese Inventory page here or by clicking on the Coins for Sale - Inventory link in the navigation bar. Coins can be filtered and organized by the sidebar.
All coins are problem free (in the case of cast coins, this means no holes, cracks, large bends, etc.; for struck coins this means not cleaned, no rim nicks, etc.) unless stated otherwise in the Notes section.

How to Order Coins
After you have decided which coins you would like to purchase, you will need to submit an order via my Order form. To do this, click on this link to the Order page, or click on the Order link in the navigation bar. Next, fill out the form as instructed, typing the Inventory Numbers of each of the items you want. If you want to make an offer on any of the coins/lots, just put your offer price after the inventory number, and I will review it and get back to you. Finally, select a shipping option and press Submit. I will then email you a Paypal invoice and answer any questions as soon as I can.
