4. 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. Our 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 our 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 our foundation, we have continuously made our 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 our customers, our sashimi knife was developed, which is an incomparable knife with a 150-centimeter blade for slicing raw fish. Our 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.

9. Utsuwa Daifuku
When we think about Japanese tableware, those from old production areas such as Arita ware and Bizen ware are well-known, but what is popular among women who treasure their sensitivities is handmade tableware created by artisans. Modern, cute, and simple wares, and pottery-making filled with individuality that does not adhere to traditional techniques or designs has been prized for its ability to fit into current lifestyles. At Utsuwa Daifuku, we select cute wares that are suitable for everyday use and items that can be used in a variety of ways for any menu, focusing on the work of young, up-and-coming potters, and propose seasonable wares. We have a variety of small items that are perfect for gifts, such as chopsticks made by traditional craftsmen, chopstick rests that can also accentuate the dining table, and bamboo products, from traditional shops in Kyoto, that stand out with artisanship. We are a popular store located in the fashion town of Aoyama.
