Nishimura Company Limited
Nishimura Co., Ltd was established in 1916 as a bookshop in Niigata (north of Japan) and started our publishing business in 1980. Our editorial office is located in Tokyo now.
At first, the publication was specialized mainly in medical field, and has been extended to children books, art books and general books.
We are attending the Frankfurt Book Fair and have a booth every year from 1984 and attending the book fairs in London, Paris, Bologna, USA, etc.
We published 20 titles of Bernadette Watts’ illustration books. In 1988, we had “The Exhibition of Bernadette Watts’ World” in 6 cities in Japan. Also in 2000 and 2003, the exhibitions of similar kind were held in Chihiro Art Museum in Azumino and Tokyo.
In 1994, we started to publish “Art Library” series in collaboration with Phaidon Press UK and 44 titles have been published till now.
At present (as of March 2015), we have published about 440 medical titles, 220 general books and 180 children books and are publishing about 40 titles annually.
Our aim is to publish good academic books in medical field which will enhance the study and practice of medicine in all its aspects. As for art, general and children books, we wish to publish the books which remain in the heart of people.
