There're a lot of shops and "bazaars" in Tokyo selling what could best be described as "over-priced Asian-themed trinkets to sell to gullible foreigners", but the Wa Space is not one of these. I stopped by after hearing a friend get excited about its collection and came away pretty impressed. Their wares are authentic pieces made by talented Japanese artists and designers from all over the country. You can find modern tableware with a quiet aesthetic (the Edo Kiriko glasses on display were especially nice) or an impressive lacquered chest one could swear is an antique. The prices range from affordable to much higher, but generally their collection is not out of reach for someone on a modest budget. The staff is happy to tell you about the pieces or the history of their designers, too, which is a nice touch.
