The desire for a hands-on travel experience with people inside and outside Japan has been on the increase recently. That’s where Asakusa Amezaiku Ameshin comes into play which will serve as an expansion of the branch in Imado, Taito.


Amezaiku is the Japanese art of crafting candy sculptures from heated sugar, most often into the form of animals.

The new shop in Hanakawado not only has a hands-on class for crafting amezaiku, but also original Ameshin products that you can buy to take home to make your own amezaiku. They also sell ready-made sculptures. The new shop is also closer to Asakusa Station than the previous, improving accessibility for travellers. The indoor space has been expanded to accommodate groups and school trips.

The old Amezaiku Ameshin in Imado will no longer be used for classes or amezaiku displays and instead become the company building and factory.


Get involved and hands-on with amezaiku, one part of Japan’s rich culture, in Asakusa.
