The Bakurocho neighborhood not far from Akihabara is an essential stop on any contemporary-art tour of Tokyo. As befits an up-and-coming creative neighborhood, Bakurocho is also home to art-supply shops, crafts galleries, coworking spaces, hip cafes, serious coffee houses and craft-beer bars. Here is our guide to some of the area highlights, including the Asakusabashi neighborhood just to the north.

My new book is here! It’s a wrapping idea book made in collaboration with two other authors! Our book is in Japanese language but all 100 projects have step-by-step image tutorials so it’s easy to follow even if you don’t read Japanese.
We’ve shown examples of how to wrap food items, stationery, cosmetics, flowers, and so on. And the first chapter is all about various ways to tie ribbons and fold paper. Oh! And there is a shop list at the back for when you’re next in Tokyo!
You can buy the book through Amazon here.
I hope you’ll enjoy it, Sandwiches!
