K. Uyeda (Kichigoro Uyeda) are likely to be the oldest established Japanese silversmiths still in business. Founded in 1884 as a souvenir store for foreign tourists, it is still in business today.

In 1923, the Uyeda store opened in the (then) recently built Imperial Hotel in Tokyo, designed by the famous American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. There were many famous people among Uyeda’s customers – American baseball players Babe Ruth and Joe DiMaggio, actress Marilyn Monroe, diplomat Henry Kissinger and his wife, professor and American diplomat Edwin Reischauer and his wife.

After the Great Kanto earthquake in 1923, theUyeda store was moved to the Yarakucho neighbourhood, located near the Ginza district. Both the first and the second floor of the building were designed in a compromise between Eastern and Western style.
