Concierge.com's insider take:

Don't overlook this inconspicuous shop in Teramachi if you have any interest in that most accessible of Japanese art forms, the ukiyo-e, or woodblock print: sensual, often sexual, frequently amusing, and highly colorful and graphic images of the "floating world" of Japan's Edo era. Nothing here is on display, however. Mr. Toru Sekigawa, who is well into his eighties, and his son Hitoshi, will talk with you, discern your tastes and interests, and then bring out prints for you to examine—just as Toru has for more than 50 years. They just don't make them like this—or like him—anymore.

Open daily 2 to 6:30 pm.
