On Friday, 13 May 2022, we visited two traditional shops in Nihonbashi which have continued since Edo Period with 12 members including the Ambassador’s wife, Mrs. Joan van der Vliet. In Edo-ya which makes traditional natural-fiber handmade brushes Mr. Hamada, 12th owner explained us about the history of the shop and about their products. In Ozu-washi we learned about the history of the shop and about various admirable usages of washi. We also enjoyed shopping. That was a day we discovered the spirit of artisans and merchants of Edo which has been inherited till today.
