Ubukeya (うぶけや)

4.0

Ceramics / Stone and Clay / Metal

Ubukeya is a traditional Japanese blade maker that was established in 1783. Nestled between the buildings in Nihonbashi Ningyocho is a wooden storefront where it feels like you've stepped back in time. Ubukeya's name originated when store founder Kinosuke said their knives were sharp enough to shave, cut and remove ubuge (peach fuzz). Now they offer an array of western and Japanese blades, knives, scissors, and tweezers. Their tweezers are highly praised and smiths bring their unfinished items for the craftsmen to sharpen into finished blades.

人形町駅からすぐ、中央区日本橋人形町3丁目にある天明3年(1783年)創業の老舗の刃物屋さんです。いかにも老舗らしく、歴史を感じる外観のお店で、中に入ってみると、まるで刃物の博物館のように、いろいろな種類のはさみや包丁などの刃物が並んでいました。人形町らしいお店の一つで、外国人観光客にも人気が有るようです。
Reviewed:2018/08/22 毛抜きを買いに人形町へ
使っている普及品の毛抜きが使い勝手は良いにもかかわらず、刃先が使えなくなりやすいので、長持ちする毛抜きを買いにこちらへ伺いました。人形町の交差点のすぐそばにお店があること、これまで気が付いていませんでした。昔ながらの小さな店舗で、老舗の風情があります。毛抜きのほかにハサミ、包丁、爪切りなどが陳列してありました。毛抜きは4000円とその3倍くらいのと2種類ありました。高いほうは、ものすごく長期間使え...

          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.
