Tonko House

  • Kinokuniya San Francsico (map)


Our San Francisco store welcomed Dice Tsutsumi and Robert Kondo of Tonko House. Their debut project, The Dam Keeper is a short animation film that was nominated for the Academy Awards in 2014. At the height of their career at Pixar, the two decided to leave and start their new company, Tonko House. Dice and Robert spoke about their decision to leave Pixar, how it was to start their own company, the difficulties and struggles to do something they have never done before, and the even bigger happiness they have achieved by doing so.
