Where to buy scissors in tokyo? 2011/5/30 17:01

I will be coming to tokyo for 3 days. I heard from one japanese hairdresser a few years ago, there is this store in tokyo selling scissors. only scissors.

I need to buy a few professional fabric scissors.

Please refer me to a store or an address if you guys know any. I've been googling and didnt find any beside KAI scissors.

THank you.

a fascinating store in Kawagoe, Saitama along the warehouse merchant houses, sells only specialized knives and scissors (for a few generations).

When you reach the Kawagoe station, take the bus to Kawagoe old town. When you reach there and miss the spot, ask at 'I' --Tourist Information. The sweet lady will direct you to the store, within walking distance.

Saitama is a prefecture outside Tokyo. It takes about 30 minutes to get to Kawagoe by train from central Tokyo. But rather than traipsing all the way out to Kawagoe to find a store that may or may not exist or be open at that time, I would suggest going to Tokyu Hands in Shinjuku, Ikebukuro, or Shibuya. They sell a wide selection of high-quality scissors for all purposes.

I recommend Kiya, a shop specialized in knives and scissors with a long history.
It's in the heart of Tokyo, Nihonbashi.

thank you for the replies.

for the kiya, they only sells knives in the website? but I will check it out once im there, I think my hotel will be close to the store.

for the tokyu store, I'll check it out also.

I have diawood scissors for fabric (Ibuy it in singapore and its so expensive there), and it was fabulous, now Im thinking to get another 5 or 6 of it for my seamstress.

is there any other better scissors than diawood? thank you for all the help and kind ans.

Remember that you will need to put this with your checked bags, not with your carry-on.
