Story & Recommendation
Takezasado - A woodblock art studio creating breathtaking pieces since 1891
Takezasado is a long-standing woodblock art studio that first opened in 1891 under the name “Takenaka."
Woodblock printing was introduced to Japan about 1,200 years ago, where it was welcomed with open arms and continually developed upon ever since.
At Takezasado, they sell various items produced with woodblock printing techniques such as postcards and even phone cases.
Located close to the Hankyu Karasuma and Shijo subway stations, Takezasado is easily accessible from downtown, so if you're in the neighborhood, drop in to check out some of their pieces and maybe even try your hand at woodblock printing yourself at one of their workshops (reservations required).
Takezasado also has an online shop in English, meaning that you can still purchase their products even after you've returned home.
