I'll be traveling to Japan for holidays and will spend several days in Tokyo and several in Kyoto.
Would any of you be able to recommend a good knives shop there that would be worth visiting? I only have one Japanese knife so far (Konosuke HD2 Gyuto), but would be very keen to use the opportunity of this trip to buy some more quality knives :)
Any suggestions what I should look for? A shop and even perhaps knives recommendation?
many thanks!

Yes, to expand my collection of high quality knives and have them also for other utilities; as most in Europe I've grown up with just Henckels/Wusthof style knives and apart from the Konosuke these are the only knives I have. I use Konosuke for making Sushi even ;)
...So, definitely I'd look to buy a good Yangiba, a strong Deba, and a couple of nice pairing knives. I also like the looks of Santoku knives, but not sure if I'd find much use for them that cannot be done between a Gyuto and Deba; or should I get one and learn its specific uses? Anything else to recommend?
Cheers!
