The shop sells a very elaborative tsumayouji that skillful artists make only 2000  a day. It also has a variety of tsumayouji like, a very thin tsumayouji, eto( animal symbols)tsumayouji, senryoubako( a box for gold), kiribako( a box made by a very good quarity wood), kuromoji tsumayouji, etc. If I choose one item in there, I’ll get a very thin tsumayouji and try to use by myself. So why don you get this tsumayouji as a present for your family or friends ? If you want to go there, get off a subway on Mitsukoshi station and go to B6 exit and walk for 7 minutes. The shop opens 9 a.m-17 pm from Monday to Saturday ( The third sunday and holiday are closed.)

    I’m wondering if there are enough people to buy tumayouji. It’s cool to keep doing one thing for a long time.
