Miyamoto Shoko in Tokyo: recommended by Sébastien Duval

The specialist of Japan Sébastien Duval recently noticed the shop Miyamoto Shoko in Tokyo’s Chuo ward while exploring Ginza area by bicycle. He strongly recommended us this ancient shop near Ginza-itchome subway station because it sells exquisite Japanese-style silverware made by hand in Japan, because its skilled silversmiths include a “living national treasure”, and because it is a purveyor to the Japanese Imperial Household Agency!

New project: Free documents to support Japanese people welcoming foreigners

I am preparing Inner Japan Web pages and printable PDF documents to support Japanese people welcoming foreign visitors in Japan: staff at ports and airports, train/subway stations, bus/ferry terminals, taxi companies, hotels and ryokans, homes and B&Bs, restaurants and bars, coffee shops and teahouses, convenience stores, supermarkets, departments stores, souvenir/gift shops, specialist shops, temples and shrines, museums and galleries, movie theatres, police stations, hospitals… Foreigners’ life, work and travel in Japan should become easier and more enjoyable :)

To start, I am listing sentences in Japanese, English and French to use at souvenir/gift shops and restaurants. The PDF documents will be available online for free on the “Welcome foreigners!” project page of Inner Japan Website.

If you wish to promote Japan, its culture or local events/activities, You are welcome to contact me to discuss the next steps of this new project!
