Edo Toys Nakamise Sukeroku (江戸趣味小玩具 仲見世 助六)

4.0

Souvenirs

"The only hobby shop in Japan specializing in small toys from the Edo period is located near the end of Nakamise Shopping Street. It sells miniature toys that originated during the reign of Tokugawa Yoshimune, the eighth shogun of the Tokugawa shogunate. The small toy animals with humorous expressions came about due to an Edo period ban on luxuries. During the period conspicuous consumption by wealthy merchants became illegal, including large and lavish toys. In response, artisans began making these tiny, elaborate items that made as small as possible or incorporated clever wordplay into their designs. These include little dogs with bamboo baskets referring to the Japanese character for ""laughter"" and red owls whose color is believed to have the power to protect people from evil."

浅草寺仲見世通り商店街にある江戸玩具専門店です。店内には職人さんによって手造りされた江戸玩具などが所狭しと並んでいます。浅草観光記念になりそうなものばっかりでした。江戸玩具ファンの方におすすめです。
Reviewed:2018/04/30 浅草寺の隣
雷門から仲見世通りをまっすぐ進み、伝法院通りも過ぎ、浅草寺の右側にある、日本唯一の江戸趣味小玩具店です。贅沢禁止令でサイズが制限されたことに端を発する小玩具ですが、外国人にとても人気があるようで、お店は大変にぎわっていました。ミニサイズ扇子などがとても可愛らしかったです。

          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.
