Kamenoko Tawashi Yanaka




※Opening November 29, 2014

In business since 1907, scrubbing brush maker Kamenoko Tawashi finally expands its business outside its original home, opening a branch shop on Yanaka's 'Hebi-dori' ('Snake Street'). In addition to their standard tawashi, which work wonders on teacup stains, this shop carries white versions of the classic model, a line of brushes by Sri Lankan designer Liza and, for the serious fans, a selection of non-brush knickknacks adorned with the Kamenoko logo.


2-5-14 Yanaka, Taito-ku, Tokyo

Transport Sendagi Station (Chiyoda line); Nezu Station

Telephone 03 5842 1907

Open 11am-6pm / closed Mon (Tue if Mon is a holiday)
