Fodor's Review

Tsubaya Knives. Tsubaya sells high-quality cutlery for professionals. Its remarkable selection is designed for every imaginable use, as the art of food presentation in Japan requires a great variety of cutting implements. The best of these carry the Traditional Craft Association seal: hand-forged tools of tempered blue steel, set in handles banded with deer horn to keep the wood from splitting. Be prepared to pay the premium for these items: a cleaver just for slicing

soba can cost as much as ¥50,000. 3–7–2 Nishi-Asakusa, Taito-ku, Ueno and Asakusa, Tokyo, 111-0035. 03/3845–2005. Mon.–Sat. 9–5:45, Sun. 9–5. Subway: Ginza subway line, Tawara-machi Station (Exit 3).
