Konnichiwa Kawaii Artsy Travelers! :)
Some people have been asking us where to shop art & craft materials in Tokyo, so here is the much-awaited post!
While going around Tokyo with my creative friend Abbey, we visited a lot of “yabai” (dangerous lol) stores that offered a lot of #OnlyInJapan art materials! Abbey’s reaction every time we would go to a store / “art mall” (store is an understatement lololols) = priceless! Just a precaution before you decide to add these places to your itinerary… make sure you have extra funds because you might be hoarding more than the usual, haha. When I first went to these places, I was sooo dumbstruck. I didn’t know where to start, haha! :))
YUZAWAYA: Art materials, kawaii fabrics, craft kits and more!
The Yuzawaya branch that we visited is Yuzawa Parco Urawa branch. This is the only branch I would visit because it’s convenient (I’m from Saitama! :D). Yuzawaya offers a wide range of art materials and fashion-related materials (from pens, craft kits, resin materials, fabric textiles, etc.). I think that it is safe to say that this is like a mini “Nippori” too (extra trivia: Nippori is dubbed as the Fabric Town in Tokyo).
I haven’t been to the Shinjuku branch but here are the access details based on their website.
YUZAWAYA Shinjuku Branch: Takashimaya Times Square 11F
Business hours: 10 AM – 8PM
