Indulge in a Little Treasure-Hunting at One of Nishi-Ogikubo’s Best Japanese Antique Shops

Also known as Antiques Watanabe, Kidoairaku is a short 6-minute walk from the north exit of Nishi-Ogikubo station. It may appear to be just a common storefront at the bend in the road, but don’t be fooled. Inside, a wealth of Japanese antiques and unique souvenirs await. From original and reproduction ukiyo-e prints to beautiful old tansu chests, the items sold at Kidoairaku have each been acquired with skill and care by knowledgeable antique lovers who are eager to share their history with you. Recommended souvenirs from this Nishiogi shop are the delicately painted soba-choko, cups traditionally used for the dipping sauce for cold buckwheat noodles.

Kidoairaku “Watanabe Antiques” is featured in Experience Suginami’s Nishi-Ogikubo Antique and Art Walk, a walking tour of some of our favorite stops on Nishi-Ogikubo’s north side. (Click HERE)
