New! Japanese Print ‘Traditional Clothing Shop in Asakusa, Tokyo’ 5×7″

☆You can purchase this print HERE!☆
 
‘Traditional Clothing Shop in Asakusa, Tokyo’
Print 5×7″-
Thank you very much for looking at my painting!  This is a limited print of my original work ‘Traditional Clothing Shop in Asakusa, Tokyo’.
*** *** ***

Asakusa is located in Taito-ward, Tokyo and it’s one of the most popular sightseeing spots in Tokyo.  If you walk straight on Kaminarimon-Dori after getting off the train at Asakusa station, you’ll see Kaminarimon Gate on your right side.

Once you walk through the gate you are on this lively shopping street called Nakamise-Dori (Nakamise Street).  Nakamise-Dori is one of the oldest shopping arcades in Japan and it extends for about 250 meters from Kaminarimon Gate to Hozo-Mon Gate.  89 shops line this lively street selling sweets, snacks, traditional crafts, souvenirs and so on.

If you walk through Nakamise-Dori you’ll see a side steet called Denpoin-Dori (伝法院通り) on your left side.  The shop in my painting is located on this street.

There are a lot of male shirts and jinbei (traditional Japanese clothes) hanging in a very small space and you can also see many zori hanging at the front.  Zori are Japanese sandals similar to flip-flops, and they are usually made of rice straw, other plant fibers and so on.


This intricate piece will give your room a hint of Japan!  It’s printed on 5×7″ premium glossy photo paper and it’s signed and numbered on the back.  I will carefully wrap your piece in a plastic sleeve and send it in a hardback envelope.  Frame is not included.

Japanese Print ‘Old Eatery in Tokyo’ Ink & Watercolour Intricate Illustration

Old Eatery in Tokyo

Print 5×7″-
This print is available HERE!
Thank you very much for looking at my painting. I’m a Japanese artist living in the UK. I create illustrations using a variety of ink and watercolour on finest quality paper.

This is a limited print of my original work ‘Old Eatery in Tokyo’.

It depicts a local teishoku-ya called Okachimachi Shokudo.  Teishoku-ya is a restaurant which serves teishoku (set menus), and this old teishoku-ya is famous for serving a big portion of food.  It’s only a minute away from Okachimachi station in Tokyo, and it exists right under the railroad!

As you can see in this painting, most restaurants in Japan display plastic food models by the entrance so the customers can see what they serve before entering the restaurant.

This intricate piece will give a hint of Japan to your room!

It’s printed on 5×7″ premium glossy photo paper and protected in a clear plastic sleeve. Signed and numbered on the back.

*Frame is not included.
