Tortoiseshell Crafts Museum / Bekkō Museum (べっ甲資料館)
[Immediately North of the area in the Ryōgoku Detail 2 map]

A very small museum devoted to Japanese tortoiseshell items and the tools used to make them from the Edo Period to the present. Combs, hairpins, and more on display. Located in the store of a traditional craftsman who works with tortoise shell, the family has been making these items for three generations since 1945.
NOTE: Most countries ban the importation of tortoise shell items. Know the law for your local before you buy any items. Japanese craftsmen usually use old shells which were obtained before the bans went into effect.
