Pick up and feel the light yet sturdy wooden crafted carafes, carved with stunning precision by hand, or buy a unique set of dishes that look like broken shards, for a quirky and entertaining meal inspired by the traditional Japanese concept of wabi-sabi. Better still, you can purchase any of the items on display for prices starting at around 2,200 yen! Some of the displays are seasonal, making HULS Gallery Tokyo's offerings something to look forward to on every visit.
