Shop Till You Drop!

One of the fascinating places we visited with Haruko on our walk through Jiyugaoka was this department store.

Unlike our department stores where the whole shop is owned by one company and there are many sections, in this building each little shop was independently owned.

Four floors of shops, from haberdasheries to groceries, bakeries to dress shops, tempted us time and again. The glamour of the ballroom dancing shop was enticing…

We resisted temptation for ourselves, but did find some lovely gifts for our friends and family – unique pieces from a special place far removed from the souvenir shops of Asakusa.
