In the middle of Shibuya’s Dogenzaka in the area dense with adult-entertainment shops and hotels lies a secretly opened artistic shop.
This place is so hard to find that you would walk right past it if you didn’t know where it was. Moreover, it’s only open at night. Even more, in the beginning it was only open on Saturday and Sunday nights. Despite this, this shop is said to have been open for 3 years.
You discover the reason for its popularity the moment you open the door. The interior is decorated with as many hand-made items as possible including on the walls, furniture, around the register, fixtures and hangers. It’s like a fairyland for adults. The atmosphere makes you feel like you’re lost inside a deep forest.
The shop offers only original items such as vintage items, hand-made items, sundries and accessories focusing on remakes of second-hand clothing.
The shop is open until the late hours of the night so you can easily stop by at times such as after work. We recommend this shop for adults who place importance on individuality.
