For the first time KAMA-ASA, originally located in Asakusa , Tokyo, is coming to London to introduce their Japanese kitchenware and tools, including knives, Japanese charcoal grill, kettles, Japanese kama pots, yukihiranabe (aluminium cooking pan) and wasabi graters.
Just like in our shop in Tokyo, we will offer a sharpening knife services, as well as advise you on any tools you wish to purchase! You will be able to participate in one of the Japanese knife sharpening classes, led by the experienced Artisan Knife Master.


The KAMA-ASA shop first opened in 1908, and was founded by Minosuke Kumazawa in the famous Kappabashi in Asakusa. Kappabashi is an extraordinary ‘kitchenware district’, lined with several dozens of stores selling everything needed by restaurant operators, as well as cooking enthusiasts, with the exception of food. KAMA-ASA has catered to the needs of chefs for over a century and is now run by the 4th generation of Kumazawa family, who is continuing the tradition and the vision of the original founders.
