1-2-5 Taito-ku, Tokyo, , Japan

To the right of the Kaminarimon—the gate opening onto Nakamise Dori, the narrow pedestrian-only shopping street leading to the Sensoji Temple—is this quaint shop specializing in washi, Japanese natural-fiber paper. It has been selling handmade paper and crafts since 1856. The delicate papers, in natural dyes and with prints from cherry blossoms to sumo wrestlers, make interesting and portable gifts for folks back home.
