Showcasing traditional and modern crafts local to the Sumida-ku area (where Tokyo Skytree is located), this attractive shop sells glassware, traditional food items, chopsticks and bowls, knives and scissors, and goods made from wood, leather and paper.
The small gallery area at the front of the facility hosts regular art exhibits, and there's a corner devoted to visiting artisans where you can watch them demonstrate their craft. Traditional sweets and tea are served in the comfortable cafe area.
This book will introduce you to more than twenty of Japan's favorite specialty foods that are less well known abroad, along with a guide to the best places in Tokyo to try them and expert tips on what to order. From our sister site Bento.com.
