KAMA-ASA (釜浅商店)


Ceramics / Stone and Clay / Metal

A traditional kitchenware shop which has operated in Kappabashi since the Meiji period. The shop procures quality products direct from skilled craftspeople to supply them to customers seeking truly good items. The shop's primary focus is kitchen knives and iron pots and pans. The shop's frypans and woks are hand-hammered from plate iron. KAMA-ASA's thick rice pots are Nambu-tekki ironware. Its kitchen knives are handmade by craftspeople from around the country and left plain without any name inscribed. On request, customers can have their name inscribed at the time of purchase. Customers can also have kitchen knives purchased here sharpened for an additional fee.

          The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It’s hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world’s tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you’re in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
