Hi from Japan. I love tools and knives and stationery and all kinds of EDC gear. Thanks!
Hi Dork !!! Welcome to EDCF !!!! Glad that you found us....enjoy the forums !
Welcome to the forums. I visited Japan in 2013, awesome country! Didn't find a whole lot of EDC stuff while I was there, apart from a BUNCH of eneloopes, but I did do a lot of window shopping / drooling for fountain pens - I love Pilot (had a 823 custom), and I've lusted after a Danitrio or Nakaya for as long as I've been interested in FPs.

Welcome! I'm currently living in Tokyo. Pretty much all of my EDC stuff has been brought over from the US.

Hello and welcome from Italy !
Thanks for the welcome!
@Highbinder Next time you're in town, find Itoya in Ginza for a pen and stationery extravaganza. Best shop in town.
@thegut I get some stuff from overseas as well (waiting for me mum to forward me a countycomm package at the mo), but am finding more and more Japanese-made products to match my needs. If you've any non-Japanese suggestions, pass them along. National borders are becoming moot when making purchases. BTW, have you been to the Edge in Shibuya?
Hey Dork!! Welcome from Georgia, USA. !! Glad to have you with us!!
I have heard! Next time for sure. Unfortunately I didn't have time to go to multiple shops so didn't see anything truely spectacular, nor anything at a better price than amazon.jp (retail markup I suppose) but it was nice to see wide offerings of fountain pens, better than the typical montblanc and cross filled shops we get here.
Saw lots of flashlights, especially lots of Fenix, but in general many 18650 based lights, seems like a more common platform there than here in Europe.
How are your knife laws? Do you edc a knife? I only took the trusty travel-safe SAK with me. I didn't see any other knives being used, apart from at the fish markets, but I suppose that's to be expected in such a tamed urban environment like Tokyo.
welcome & fasten your wallet

Welcome from the uk. Guy called milpic japan does a lot of tactical gear vids on yt. Lives out in japan apparently. Some of the clothing vids he's done feature asia edition clothing. Worth a look.
Welcome from Portland, Oregon.
I definitely will. I haven't been to the Edge yet but I've heard about it. I will probably stop by before I move back to the US but right now, with how restrictive the knife laws are in Japan, I'm not looking to buy anymore knives till I can actually carry them.

@Highbinder @thegut In Japan I carry a Spyderco Dragonfly, which comes in at just under 5 cm, the law limit being 6 cm. You can own and use fixed blades as well as long as the purpose is clear and acceptable (e.g. working in the trades). I slung a Mora fixed blade when putting a deck on my mother-in-law's house and was probably within my rights to do so. Also, I've read that you can carry larger blades when camping or hiking, as long as they are not easily accessible, i.e. not at the ready to injure or maim someone. Not sure where I read that last one, so don't quote me. I've also heard that using a knife aggressively with another person is against the law, regardless of whether you are attacking or defending your life. It's a good mantra: knives are not weapons.
