    I havent been able to find much for straight razors here in japan, there is a cutlery shop in ginza i received my japanese style razor from. if you would like their details i have hook you up. they have a wonderful section of knifes also. they also have a few brushes, safety razors and misc male grooming products. there are also a few stores that have some shaving supplies(creams, aftershaves and safety razor blades. send me a message if you would like to know some into, cheers!

    Two places I can suggest:

    Yahoo Japan auctions - a bit hit or miss as the auctioneer's information isn't very clear and you will need to have it honed.

    I've also seen one or two straight razors at an expensive men's fashion shop at Aoyama, but I didn't check the brand details nor the price (likely to be expensive):

    DRIES VAN NOTEN
    5-5-4 Minami Aoyama
    Minato-ku
    Tokyo 107-0062
    +00 81 03 5766 8608

    However again you will need to have it honed.

    Best to order a shave ready razor online from overseas.

    I know a number of places too (I've had six years of poking around many shops), anyone interested send me a PM.

    I can help with honing too.

    I just moved back to the states in september. I loved living over there.

    As far as places to go, i know in the Yokosuka area, there is a cutlery shop on Blue Street that always had various straights in stock.

    Sub-forum doesn't seem particularly active, but I'll add my name to the list nonetheless. I moved to Japan in the spring of 2000 to continue my martial arts studies. I live in central Tokyo between Ueno Park and Tokyo University, and have recently become interested in straight razors. There is bit more about me in my New Member Intro thread, HERE. I will hopefully be meeting up with Seth at some point as I am definitely in need of some guidance and mentoring in the world of straight razors.

    Hi All,

    My Girlfriend and I will be moving to Tokyo for work/holiday at the end of this month. We just booked an apartment in Shinagawa. It's good to see there are a few members in Japan so I know I wont be alone! I'm sure I'll be popping up later on the in the year asking for advice on where to get a blade honed in tokyo!

    Cheers,

    Cheers,
    Let us know when you get settled in. Maybe we can get together for a coffee or a beer.

    Cheers,
