On my recent trip to Tokyo(a personal one), I had the pleasure of meeting Takemata-san, the owner/designer of Nushisa gallery and attelier. Not only does he carry his own beautiful handmade lines, but also has a great selection of other lacquerware, pottery, and handmade items. They treated us with such kind hospitality, we had a beautiful time eating his mother’s handmade food on beautiful plates and cutleries. We walked out with a huge bag of amazing art work. A must visit. It is in Saitama prefecture’s Yoshikawa station which is about an hour from Shinjuku and a 10 miniute walk from the station. Note: cash only.
Takemata-san with co・zen. A bit camera shy!??
Visited with family from Spain. So focused on buying!
One of the many things I purchased(for myself!)…a very cute wooden broach of little birds. Aren’t they just so adorable!???
Here is a map to Nushisa from Yoshikawa station. If visiting, maybe you can print this out.
