Planning a trip to Japan, anywhere I should be sure to vist?

Postby James McI » Sun Feb 22, 2015 11:30 pm

I'm planning a two week trip to Japan, and I was wondering if anyone here knows of locations I should visit during my trip, especially in relation to metal carving and the metal arts. If there are supplies I should try and grab during my trip as well while I have access, it would be good to know.

I'm primarily visiting the Tokyo area, but am planning on hopping the rail to Kobe for the carpentry museum, and figured I should take the opportunity to get some first hand research into the tegane arts.

I had searched through in skimming, but I guess I missed the pertinent posts mentioned. I know about Komokin and it's retail location, but will read through all the past posts to try and find it out what references you are referring to.

If you are going to Kobe just for the carpentry museum, then perhaps you would be interested in going to near by Miki. Miki is a blacksmithing, woodworking tool making city. They have a tool museum there also.
