I know exactly where to get them in Japan, but elsewhere, no.

Out of interest, what do you use them for? Japanese chefs generally don't use them for pastry -- they're for hollowing out cucumbers, mostly.

I think I saw those on either the Ichy or Ikkanshi web site recently. I'll leave links as well as Google translate so you can peruse if you want.

i love these tubes

I dont use them for pastry ether . but they are fantastic for long fine tubes from various veg , also for making holes of different sizes in veg
which then be stuffed eg white radish that looks like bone marrow . or holes in crisped veg for effect. or small discs of veg or jelly

If you're going to Japan, I have three suggestions:

Tokyo: go to Kappabashi, near Asakusa. It's sort of the restaurant supply strip. You'll find lots of the things.

Kyoto: go to Aritsugu, in Nishiki Market. I know they've got them.

Osaka: there's a strip that sort of competes with Tokyo's Kappabashi, where you can find them. If you're going to Osaka and not elsewhere, let me know and I'll look up the information -- it's been a while and I don't remember exactly.
