The shop was produced by the party-rocker, Akkun who is the sightseeing ambassador of Shibuya.


The world’s first blue shrine gate installed at the entrance of the shop is made of Japanese cedar brought in from Tokushima Prefecture and colored blue using the indigo dying method. Modern“garden/tearoom areas” using traditional Japanese crafts such as works using a stuffed bear and large bamboo rake using the motif of Takasaki Daruma (traditional Japanese round doll)have been set up. The areas are going to be used as a photo spot, workshop spot, event space and live space for street musicians.



The products they are going to sell include lacquered tumblers and clutch bags made of Nishijinori (traditional Japanese fabric). They are also selling many kinds of interesting souvenirs for tourists from both inside Japan and abroad such as snacks, chopsticks, Japanese towels and original decals.
