Tenuki Statue 2012/10/22 06:13
Where can i purchase a Ceramic Tenuki statue in Tokyo for my garden or front door? Last time in Tokyo we looked around Asakusa near the shrine to Tenuki but had difficulty finding a suitable one. A specific store or street would be helpful, if possible. Thanks.

You mean Tanuki. Tenuki is ''being sloppy''.

There is a Kappabashi kitchen street, a wholesales stores street for restaurants not far away from Asakusa (about 15 minutes walk from Sensoji to the west, bewtween Tawaramachi and Inaricho). You should be able to find a tanuki there, I think.

Taniki statue has its origins from Shigaraki pottery town in Shiga Prefecture, about an hour from Kyoto. So it might not be so popularly found in Tokyo.

I suspect that Tokyu Hands in Shubuya or Shinjuku have tanuki figures.

BTW, some stores in KappaBashi will close on weekend,
so I can recommend to visit there by evening on weekday.

Or online shopping because it's unwieldy.
