Description

Taito City is home to many workshops that produce traditional craftwork that Japan boasts to the world. In the Edo period, Taito City that flourished as a merchant’s town saw high demand for goods used in kabuki and items for merchant’s daily living. Artisans gathered to this place not only because of this reason but also for the fact that materials were easy to convey utilizing water transport of the Sumida River. We broadly introduce traditional craftwork and traditional artisans. For those who want to see the technique of master craftsmen up close or have an interest in experiencing Japanese craft-making, we will introduce you a workshop where you can take a tour of and have hands-on experiences. We also have various sightseeing pamphlets useful for walking around the area, so please stop by when you come to the Ueno Station area.
