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).

I'm an expat who has lived abroad for almost a decade, including 7 years in Japan. I've also visited 44 of 47 prefectures and hope to get to the last three someday! I'm particularly fond of exploring off the beaten path destinations, gardens, and tea houses, and have a real interest in Japan's growing vegan scene.

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

Yes, but... I'm retired artist now :)

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!
