Venue: Tokyo Big Sight When: Jan 11th - Jan 12th 2021 , 11:00am - 6:00pm

Japan has a long-standing tradition of artisanship, something which still stands to this day. The Handmade in Japan Fes is a celebration of this in modern times, with vendors showcasing a variety of goods made with love and immense skill.

The event has everything from jewelry to bags, clocks to leather items, and even handmade plush toys for sale -- and that's just scratching the surface. There will also be stage performances and a number of food booths available to grab a bite from.

Getting there

The Handmade in Japan Fes is held at Tokyo Big Sight (also known as the Tokyo International Exhibition Center).

By Train

The closest station is Tokyo Big Sight on the Yurikamome Line. The venue is approximately 3 minutes on foot from the station itself.

By Car

If you're driving to the venue from central Tokyo, take the Daiba IC from the Shuto Expressway. Tokyo Big Sight is approximately five minutes drive from there.

Japan dwelling expat, living in and loving this beautiful country. Tokyo was my home for several years, but I'm now enjoying the countryside life in Niigata. Currently at 44 of 47 prefectures visited - with only Kagoshima, Miyazaki and Kumamoto left to check out!

I bet those items are expensive, but I'd like to look at them as an exhibition. ;)

We're always on a lookout for made-in-Japan stuff to give as presents to friends. Good to know!

I feel the same way! It's nice being able to support individuals and not huge corporations, too!
