Have a look at a close-to-extinct traditional handicraft of Tokyo—kanzashi—at Tsumami Kanzashi Museum. Kanzashi are delicate ornaments that decorate young women's hairdos as they put on kimono on important occasions such as New Year, coming-to-age ceremony, and their birthdays. These kanzashi are often made to look like flowers. The process of making a kanzashi is very meticulous and painstaking. In fact, only very few craftsmen master this piece of art nowadays.
Besides using kanzashi as a hair accessory, feel free to use it as an ornament for your room or a gift for a loved one.
