Rin 8890 is one of my favourite Japanese craft boutiques in Tokyo. If you are looking for utilitarian items with great style, this is a one-stop store. Although the store’s space is small, you are sure to find something that you “must” have. Rin 8890 Best Living Japan.
Rin, also, has a beautiful new website that is quite convenient if you can not get to the Kanda/Akihabara area. Many people may remember Rin from their store in Aoyama/Omotesando which they just closed last year.
Some of my favourite items for this years holidays include the following. But check it out and find your treasure or a gift for someone else!
3. Not just soap on a rope, but fish soap on a rope! What man doesn’t need one of these?
5. Does the man in your life have everything? Well, how about these kitchen tools made for men (?). They are black and stylish so I guess men would want to peel vegetable or open cans more frequently. Either way they are a sleek design that would look handsome in any man or woman’s hands.
And to top your gifting off, Rin 8890 has a beautiful selection of furoshiki (wrapping fabric) to present your gifts.
