It may no longer be the hotbed of commerce that it once was, but Ningyocho still provides a home to many practitioners of traditional Japanese crafts. Saruya has been producing toothpicks since 1704 – an impressive feat of longevity that makes more sense once you've actually used one of their handmade wonders. There's a good range of box sets on offer, many of them featuring toothpicks wrapped in paper slips bearing fortunes and love songs.
