Your One-Stop Shop For Japanese Souvenirs
At this special folk art shop you can find all kinds of Japanese souvenirs. There are a lot of stores selling folk pieces in Japan, but this one’s uniqueness in part comes from that it is owned by a popular novelist.
Mr. Shouichi Nejime, the famous novelist and poet, has kept up the store. It has a large assortment of small articles, such as “tenugui” (a traditional Japanese wrapping cloth), “washi” (Japanese hand-made paper), as well as traditional toys like “otedama” and “kendama”, decorations, decorated boxes, and more.
When looking for the ideal Japanese gift or souvenir to remember your time in Japan, look no further than Nejime Mingei-ten, located on Asagaya’s Pearl Center Shopping Street!
