While Machida may not be widely known as an area for vintage clothing, ‘HAKUi’ has many fans. You can find here a very large collection of items from not only Japan but also Europe and the U.S. What’s amazing is that some of the clothes go all the way back to the Victorian times!
With its wooden furniture and part-brick flooring, HAKUi manages to create a very warm and comfortable atmosphere. The shop is quite spacious but is packed with beautiful vintage items. They also sell most of the interior goods on display so there’s a lot to see!
Another special thing about this shop is that the staffs regard their customers as ‘friends’ and try to suggest fashion ideas through fun and friendly conversation. What’s better than going shopping for clothes and making new friends at the same time?
