6.Azuma Minamoto no MASAHISA

6.Azuma Minamoto no MASAHISA

As a place that disseminates Japanese food culture, the Tsukiji fish market attracts many people from both within and outside of Japan every day. The store is in the Tsukiji Outer Market and originated from swordsmiths who served the Minamoto clan through the ages. In 1872, when the fish market was in Nihonbashi, we changed from swordsmithery to kitchen knife smithery and established the store. In 1962, with the relocation of the fish market to Tsukiji, we moved to Tsukiji as well. Over a long period of 145 years, Azuma Minamoto-no MASAHISA has progressed together with the history of the Tsukiji fish market. Since their foundation, we have continuously made their own efforts in research and development while at the same time following the traditional methods of swordsmiths. Through such efforts made by successive family heads along with their customers, their special sashimi knife was developed, which is an incomparable knife with a 150-centimeter blade for slicing raw fish. The unique manufacturing methods and reliable sharpening craftsmanship which we nurtured through strict practice allow us to offer kitchen knives that have won the favor of a variety of long-standing customers, from professional chefs to home cooks. We also offer services that meet a variety of customers’ needs, such as a made-to-order service and a name engraving service. We look forward to your visit.

8.KAMAKURA HANKO

8.KAMAKURA HANKO

Come and visit the land of inherited seal culture in Kamakura!

Kamakura Hanko is a seal made with traditional Japanese methods from the ancient times. All work is carried out in store.

Hanko, Senjuuji, and Makie stickers are a traditional part of Japanese culture, and are said to bring good luck.

Seal culture spread during the Kamakura period under Minamoto no Yorimoto, the first shogun of the Kamakura shogunate of Japan. Through the trades between the shogunate and the Song dynasty, issuance of documents among samurai, and in trades among common people, seals, “kaō” (stylized signatures), thumb prints and “tsumein” spread throughout the land of Kamakura.

Kamakura Hanko is a special seal made in Kamakura, a city imbued with such history.

With carefully selected natural stone, horns and precious timbers, and seal stock blessed by Kamakura’s renowned Shinto shrine, they will create a seal from the stroke count of your name, making a most auspicious and appropriate seal for you.

For those who believe in omens and signs, for those who are trying to attract their own luck rather than just waiting for it, make this a spot on your list!

In Kamakura Hanko, the third-generation owner, puts his heart into each seal when he finishes them, one-by-one, creating one-and-only seal for better fortune.
