We found this broom in a small towns from Magome to Tsumago, we carried these brooms with us along some of the Nakasendo trail. We got a few interested looks from fellow travellers but it we think it was worth it. Use it for your daily sweeping.
On our latest trip to Japan, we stopped by little backstreet markets, cute kitchenware stores, antique shops and small family run businesses to find a selection of unique often one of a kind pieces.
