Kaikodo, "The Hall of Embracing Antiquity," was the studio name in Kita-Kamakura in Japan chosen during the late 1970s by Howard and Mary Ann Rogers for their growing personal collection of Chinese paintings, ceramics, and other works of art. In 1983 the Rogers established a company dedicated to the acquisition and sale of works of art of high aesthetic quality and art-historical interest and importance. They naturally named their company Kaikodo. Kaikodo rapidly became known to museum professionals in Japan and around the world as an important source for fine and rare Asian paintings and antiquities.
