How did 18th-century shoguns keep their robes lint free? With a brush from Edoya, where the twelfth generation of the Hamada family still makes brushes for every imaginable purpose, such as applying kabuki makeup (use the goat-hair hake brush) or freshening up wool coats (the betsuatsurae brush, made of boar hair imported from China). 2-16 Nihonbashi
