(inside the store)
As we are presenting some shops from Nippori, this time we visited the Iwase Shoten.
It is a little far from the station and people who go for the first time usually have difficulty to get there.
This is the reason why you can find there original materials that you won't find in other shops.
The shop is signaled by a cute signboard hanging from under the eaves.
The shop displays a compact and cozy interior where rolls of cloth are packed.
The shop mainly sells fabric by piece. For a length of over one meter, you can have it cut in units of 10 centimeters.
Denim for bottom use is especially recommended for its solidity.
Recently, it seems that dressmakers are coming from overseas to purchase large quantities.
Because of that, be able to find something good is a question of luck, but we can safely recommend to avoid the sales period, so that you can take your time to shop.
The owners are a friendly couple who seem to value the communication with their clients.
So we advise you to try strolling out of the main street of Nippori and go shopping.
