In addition to tables and chairs, there are items such as lighting fixtures, flowerpots, door knobs, sofas and even bicycles on this floor.
garnish opened in 2006 and will be in business for its 7th year this year. At first, garnish was below ground under Mt. Gotenyama beside Inokashira Park. 3 years ago the location was moved to Nakamichi Dori. The Nakamichi Dori shopping district is the longest in Kichijoji. garnish is a little seperated from the station but the walk along the brick path of the shopping district should put you in a good mood and take away your troubles. Your spirits may be raised even higher when you see the exterior of this lovely shop.
