See and Touch Artisans’ Work at the Gallery

On the Orange street where Asakusa public hall is located as a landmark, you will find many cafes, mercers, and other unique shops. Gallery “iichi” opened among those unique shops on the street last summer.

Originally they sold their homemade products online. Those that are displayed here are carefully selected from a hundred-thousand products. Customers can touch them and feel the artisans’ work.

There is a clothes shop called “Yutorito" on the second floor of the building, where this is the entrance of “iichi”.

Beside each product, there is a card that introduces the creator of the product. If you like a particular artisan’s work, you can go to his/her website and purchase your favorites as well as buying it right at the shop, it is a good way to get connected with the artisans and interact with them.

The products vary in various kinds of materials from post cards, pottery, woodwork, and accessories. The way they are displayed inside the shop is also unique.

There are no any identical products in here since they are all homemade. Even small articles are each different!

All the products are produced one by one, and you will be amazed how exquisitely detailed they are! They hold events regularly and are trying to throw more activities! Don’t miss out on those events at “iichi” and find your favorite!
