It is long-established store of founding 1910. Is relation with market long?

 It is open since fish market was in Nihonbashi in the times previous than Tsukiji market. It was clogs dealer, footwear shop in old days in Nihonbashi. When Tsukiji market opened in (1935) in 1935, shop moved together, too and was open afterwards in Tsukiji market.
 It is the second generation that we began the making of gum boot and makes on the basis of boots which professional working in market uses. We came to treat white robe and clothes when you should come in total coordinate as well as step during the third generation. Mother (Hiroko Ito) is the fourth generation, and I am the fifth generation now if mother retires. As for me, development of original product is the center other than sale and business. As well as gum boot, I almost perform design and copying only in market such as T-shirt and tote bag.

After school graduation, did you begin business immediately?

 Originally we worked at advertisement and publication agency. As we liked work of advertisement and publication, there was dilemma, but entered business at 2000 because father died suddenly. Because it was tough for mother in shop, and I was able to grow up simply because there was this shop, we thought that it was natural to inherit business.
 But we keenly realized when we entered as iza employee when indulged so far. Though we were gentle, as for the staff, clerk was stern. That is taught from the beginning; there was less dependence at all saying was or "there is different" on seeing performance, or was saying "do not still praise" for oneself with an effort, but was good at all.

[Koto Who's who in Koto-ku] About 20 kinds of gum boots of scale mark of "Ito scale" executive director Kanako Ito original. Popularity is high for general person for fishing and fieldwork, gardening

Where will gum boot of scale mark be different from general gum boot in?

 We prepare boots depending on use, and all parts and the functions such as soles vary according to uses as well as design, too. "Daicho of main product belonging to white bottom" is popular toward the public, but, about series called this white scale, it is very durable and is strong. One which is strong in oil of fish, and is grippy features sole in particular using oil-resistant bottom specialized in Uoya.
 In addition, he/she prevents penetrating cold because there are 3 centimeters of heels. Heel often does the inside in cavity on light weight and cost side, but usually uses mukusoru as we are thinking about house as the important tools of trades which professional uses. You can wear until heel disappears even if we wear down.
 Besides, we prepare approximately 100 kinds when we include about 20 kinds, others in winterization only with our brand including superior thing as thing and market which focused on difficulty of heat than the durability are cold to use water when there is many. When it comes to gum boot, we do not stay (laugh).

Market is image called the workplace of energetic man, is there difficulty in such an aspect?

 Market is male society, and, in the house, aspect to have a hard time as both mother of manager and I are women is reliable. It is not physically firm like man if we say with my case and is serious if we do only in women including management of stock as boots in particular are heavy. We do not match man in such a point. It is not sour grapes particularly at all (laugh).
 But think that male society is all right, and may be said, "let's try hard climbing over man society because is woman" well, but after all is the workplace of man here. It is the refreshing world that even auction makes a prompt decision in voice of man and decides promptly. We think that it is wonderful.
 It is the best joy to be able to make work into myself in market, and every day is fun. We find purpose of life in to work in market.

"Fish does, and enjoy conversation with professional in bystreet"

"Fish does, and there are various shops in bystreet". Is horizontal connection strong?

 "Fish does, and, in the bystreet," there are about 70 stores in product sales specialty store which professional of market buys. As we are support duties called associated company of market, there is shop which is open other than vegetables, tsuma, kitchen knife of daikon in floors different such as repair business of tare if there is mover of transportation.
 We think that fellow feeling may be strong. It is the almost same member since the age of Tsukiji. As we often went to Tsukiji, there is face which we still knew from that time, and father feels warmth that is in old house since childhood even if I do not know when which was taken care of hears story that "your father jumps", and it is said what.

"Fish does, and it is public information of bystreet", but Kanako, please tell by art when general person does shopping by all means.

 Of "fish does bystreet" most shops are open from 5:00 to 6:00 before early morning. Closing from past about 1:00 p.m. When you arrive, please be careful at time. Our restaurant is business early in the morning from 5:00 to past 14:00. As early time has much professional use, you should cross schedule to finish shopping by around 12:00 from 8:00 a.m. If you get up early and can come to market because early rising is virtue of three sentences, we can enjoy atmosphere of market full of vigor and think that we can get well.
 In addition, we think that there are many shops answering if we wait until time to have and do question and consultation because people of shop are professionals having anything to do with professional. We want you to enjoy conversation by all means.

Finally I would like impression of Koto City and future ambition.

 I am born and raised in Suginami and work was Chuo-ku, but we come for Toyosu Market and are coming to like Koto City. We like walking about and may go to Kiyosumi Shirakawa and Kiba Park. Koto City is image called traditional town, and a lot of children are convenient. We feel newness and power in here Toyosu. When space may be correct in park, the outskirts of market think.
 History of Toyosu Market proud of to the world just began and, as for the long long history, follows after this. We want local people to know. There are collaboration goods with "Koto City sightseeing character Kotomi" in market goods which we handle, too. We think while valuing communication with local people that you should be able to do your best together.
