Japanese sword concierge

It is almost hard to believe that a book store has Japanese sword exhibition. Moreover, some of the items there are for sale! (Price tags were not seen when taking these pics, but some sword had a sign of "Reserved / 売約済" .)

This is one of Tsutaya book store chain, located at 6th floor of Ginza SIX. This shopping complex opened in April 2017, featuring art and upscaled fashion. 

To face the problem of real possibility and awkwardness of bringing in a sword to your countries, no one would probably purchase one. But what is amazing with this exhibition booth is, there is a sword concierge.

An expert will guide you to Japanese history of Samurai worriers, and will give you deep talks about craftmanship of making sword. 

Sword fans! Add this book store to your itinerary !

Hi, I am an English speaking tour guide with national license. I love travelling overseas myself, which made me start my new career path as an interpretting tour guide in 2017 after 16 year's working at a publisher.

I have lived in Tokyo for 20 years. It has been always my joy to rediscover Tokyo, and sharing those fine tips with you is going to be my happiest monent. Let me help you create unforgettable memory by suggesting you from
casual canteens to hi-end restaurants, from traditional experience to modern activities, from sacred spots to romantic sites, and so on.

My idea is "Travel is a chance to streangthen togetherness among family, friends, and lovers." I truly got over my serious situations through travel, which I was saved by.
If you are thinking of a surprise gift during your stay to whom you are accompanying, please feel free to share your idea with me beforehand.

Just for information, I stayed in Malaysia for 2 months by summer homestay program for high-schoolers, and also studied in Hong Kong for half a year as a college exchange student. I am especially a big fan of Asian countries, but at the same time I have a strong longing for Western cultures.

Waiting for your contact. See you in Tokyo! (^_^) read more
