The family-owned store has almost 700 years of tradition in swords making for the Japanese emperor. However, since katanas are no longer needed, they switched their business to producing knives and other cutlery. It might be a great souvenir to bring it back home.

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
