Nippon Token (Japan Sword)

Nippon Token (Japan Sword) Review

Wannabe samurai can learn how to tell their toshin (blades) from their tsuka (sword handles) with help from the English-speaking staff at this small shop, which has been open since the Meiji era (1868–1912). Items that range from a circa-1390 samurai sword to inexpensive or decorative reproductions will allow you to take a trip back in time.
