in Asakusa & Sumida River

A Japanese knife is not only a highly practical and prized piece of kitchenware, it can also be extremely beautiful in its design. Admire an excellent range at this upmarket store that has been in business since 1908. There are English- and French-speaking staff on hand, and there's a good range of other kitchen implements, including steel pans.

If you can wait for a week, they can engrave your name or choice of words onto a knife for free.
