Sources for Japanese Gardening tools?
Does anyone know where, other than through Hida (http://hidatool.com/shop/shop.html), I can find Japanese tools?
I am sure there are oter makers out there.
I got a catalog from Japan Woodworker, I expect they have a web site too, and with the tools come the gardening tools, usually.
Check your local oriental grocery stores. Today I saw at least three different kinds of tools I recognized as being Japanese in my favorite Oriental grocery (in Knoxville TN) and it's run by ladies who I think are Korean. They specialize in serving lots of different ethnic eating styles.
