About Tokyo silverware

Japan was historically one of the largest producers of silver in the world. During the Edo period (1603-1868), many silverware artisans had appeared, and with the cultural and economic growth being experienced by the country, the use of silverware became widespread among the common people. It was also during this time that the Ginza coin mint was established in the place that is now Ginza 2-chome.
