Great shop showing and selling a variety of Japanese-style woodblock prints, made by Mokuhankan, 20th-century printers, or Edo/Meiji-period printers. Very accessible, even for novices, and fairly priced. Prints can be personally viewed without bother and the staff are eager, if asked, to provide more information....More

Went here with no great expectations but what an experience that proved with care that an excellent woodblock print could be produced. Excellent instruction throughout but you were allowed to get on with it and the result was quite amazing.

David was such a good teacher! He was also very funny and personable, his assistant was extremely helpful. Definitely recommended if you’re looking for something fun and educational to do in the Asakusa area! We also bought some beautiful prints!

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
