As aficionados of quality and craftsmanship, Tokyoites are fond of handmade, artisanal products. In recent years, eastern Tokyo has emerged as the artisan district of the city, thanks to its heritage as a wholesale centre for speciality crafts back in the Edo period. You'll also find a number of other dedicated craftsmen all around Tokyo where they have been spending years perfecting their unique crafts.
