Step into Japan’s largest creator’s festival “Handmade in Japan Fes”. Over 3000 creators from across Japan (usually there are also creators from Taiwan and Hong Kong too, but we’ll see abou that) will have their creations on display. This year’s theme is ‘Minna no Takarajima’ and aims to be an island of treasure for everyone who attends. Products will be both tranditional and contemporary (often a blend of the two)—from tatami products to stylish phone cases.
Whether you’re starting your Christmas shopping early, looking for birthday presents or just something new, this is a great place to buy handmade crafts, support independent makers and make sustainable shopping choices.
The event will be held in the West Hall (1 and 2) of Tokyo Big Sight and tickets are available for one or two days.
