If you're not planning to travel outside Tokyo, a visit to this center will provide you with a whistle-stop tour of the best crafts from all over Japan. They sell ceramics from kilns up and down the country, plus everything from lacquer plates and iron pots to bamboo tea whisks. These are not tourist trinkets but serious work, and prices range from the very reasonable to the justifiably high for the most exquisite pieces. It's a good place to pick up easy-to-transport handmade paper lights. There's always an exhibition upstairs, featuring a visiting artisan displaying his or her skills. The giant Tobu department store is next door.
