From Japan to the world, the new wave of “made in TokyoJapan has a unique culture and history built up over the years, giving birth to long-standing traditions of craftsmanship. In this regard, Tokyo is commonly seen as a hypermodern metropolis on the cutting-edge of technology and creativity. However, it is also home to many small and medium enterprises that have contributed to Tokyo’s lesser-known identity as a center for manufacturing.Located in the northeastern part of Tokyo, Adachi Ward first developed as an area with many shukuba (rest stations) during the Edo period (1603-1868). From the Meiji period (1868-1912), light and heavy manufacturing began to flourish, and the ward has continued to develop as an industrial hub to the present day. In recent years, Adachi has made considerable progress in developing social infrastructure such as transportation networks and attracting universities to the area – forming a deep culture where tradition and innovation coexist under the concept of “co-creation”.Adachi Tide HK Edition comprises sixmanufacturers and brands that embody this spirit through their specialized techniques and history. They span from traditional sweets that have been modernized and redesigned, niche tools born from the skills of local factories, to sustainable apparel and accessories.Through this diverse lineup of makers, we invite you to experience the potential of manufacturing in Adachi, Tokyo.
