Kamata Hakensha was established in Asakusa, Tokyo in 1923. Its cutlery polishing technique has been passed down through four generations over approximately 90 years. Its carefully selected lineup of more than 800 products is a testament to its expertise and includes items that represent the craftsmanship of traditional Japanese methods as well as items produced with high quality control using modern equipment.
Products purchased here come with “name hand-carving” (free) and “polishing” (free only for original products) services and are suitable as souvenirs and presents. Kamata Hakensha also offers knife repair, polishing and sharpening services.
Asakusa Kokonoe, is a popular Agemanju store located in Asakusa, for which there is always a line. The manju is fried in oil and loved for its crispy yet puffy texture. There are many varieties of fillings such as strained azuki bean paste, bean paste containing whole azuki, green tea filling, sweet potato filling, pumpkin filling, cherry blossom filling and custard filling. Care is taken to maintain the popular taste by using only ingredients made in Japan, including frying oil of the highest quality.
A deep-fried sweet called Yumekizuku, which is sold on a limited basis on the local ennichi (day of connection) on the 18th of every month, is also popular. Agemanju has become representative of Asakusa among all the many stores in the area, and is popular as a souvenir, but many tourists enjoy nibbling on the fresh made manju while walking around the area. The shop is located a 2-minute walk away from the Tokyo Metro Asakusa Station, the third store from the Sensoji Temple side on Nakamise-dori.

No.5：Sensu Senmonten Manyo
This is a store specializing in folding paper fans, dealing in ornamental fans, fans for using on hot days, and fans for traditional dancing. Come and see the extensive selection and original designs that only a specialty store provides (Japan-made).
The fans are beautiful, light, compact, and very popular with overseas visitors. We also recommend them as souvenirs for visitors inside Japan, or as presents for any occasion.
Folding fans have been produced since the Heian period (the 700s AD) and are among Japan's quintessential traditional craft items. They are widely used in everything from imperial ceremonies to shrines, temple ceremonies, weddings, noh plays, kabuki, traditional Japanese dance, tea ceremonies, rakugo storytelling and festivals. Take some time in the quiet store interior to pick out your fan.
We look forward to seeing you.
