This shop is located a few meters away from Tawaramachi-station. You can buy not only Kokeshi dolls, but also Japanese traditional crafts made by the owner's family. Especially I recommend you to check various kinds of the shop owner's calligraphy writing, shodo. If compared, they are much cheaper and you can buy directly from the person that created the beautiful... More

This autumn, we came back to Asakusa and visited the Suganami souvenirs shop again, and we fell in love with the kokeshi (wooden japanese dolls) they sell :) This time we met a man named Yasutaka and his...

I discovered this gem of a shop couple of weeks and have visited it twice since. It is run by a lovely family. First of all, the art work is amazing and a lot of time and effort has been put into it.

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
