  • Chirimen Craft Museum

    Kyoto Shopping

    The Chirimen Craft Museum in Arashiyama is not a museum at all; it is a store that specializes in items made from chirimen (a special way of weaving that creates a textured fabric). Perhaps what makes it a "museum" is simply that it has greater selection than most other places that have chirimen items. The shop has a wide variety of mobiles,...

    Osaka Shopping

    Not much different from other Takashimaya but i always find interesting deals when I go there. This one is particularly big and has good food on the first floor. One thing special to note is that the building it is in is one of the rare one that survived the bombings of the war alongside the nearby train station.

  • Aeon Mall Atsuta

    Nagoya Shopping

    So, Atsuta Aeon is definitely the place to go mall-shopping in Nagoya. They have everything. I could spend a whole day there, and I don't really like to shop. There are many great shops in the mall. Beaux-Arts, I think, is one of them. I'm not from Japan, so I get into the exotic stuff that foreigners love about Japan. All the cool yucattas and...

    Going to the Pokemon Center was a pilgrimage of sorts for me. I was a big fan of the original Pokemon animated series when it was just the original 151 and haven't been keeping up with the series or games since then so it was a bit disappointing that most of the items in the store were of the new Pokemon characters. However, they did have some...
