The Most Unique Vintage-Style Hat Shop in Tokyo?!
[updated November 2018]
Japanese people are known for always wearing hats when traveling, and not only to protect them from harmful UV rays, but also because hat fashion in Japan is very popular. For both men and women who seek made-in-Japan vintage-style hats, this is the place to go!
You won’t find another unique hat shop like this in Tokyo other than Manaboo, which is located on Look Shopping Street in Koenji, south of the station. They have more than 1,000 hats in-store, which are all attractive and worth checking out. Here you can find high quality brand hats made by famous designers from both Japan and overseas. All are handmade, designer fashion or vintage-style and some are even specifically limited editions. The pirate hat collection will surely complement your Halloween look, or check out the walls of “circus” hats for cosplay. There are also more simple yet elegant looking top hats for formal occasions. The prices can be high, but for the quality and individuality of the hats that you will not find elsewhere, they are worth the price. They offer discounts during summer and winter sales.
Manaboo is highly recommended for those seeking something unique and fashionable.
