Last month we had a trip to Kobe, Hyogo.
Kobe is one of representative port town of Japan, and have so nice atmosphere at stores and streets.
One of the Kobe styles store is mature.
They started to run as an original selected hat store almost ten years ago, and now they produce their original design hats “mature ha”.
Their outstanding work is the BOXED HAT that it is possible to put the straw hat in the paper box.
Theses hat is coming on pipperoo.jp soon !!
One of the most interesting feature in Kobe is that the shops and galleries still use the pleasant old building by renovating, so the building and street have their unique atmosphere.
Luv Kobe style.
Last summer we took part in the OHAYO CAFE that my friend organized the weekend relaxed event.
Artists and workers in the field of several categories usually gather together at this event.
And that time we went to the camping area close to Mt. Fuji.
Some people open the hair salon under the sky:)
There is a play space for children.
And some horses are in the stable.
The tree house is made by hand.
“GOEMON BURO”. You could soak in the bathtub outside.
And a soft cream shop:) yummy…
It’s so relaxed time and nice atmosphere very close to nature.
Hope you have a great day.
One of my favorite bookstore is Daikanyama TSUTAYA bookstore in Tokyo.
Here a lots of magazines and books came from all over the world are available.
In addition, there are restaurants, cafe space, camera shop, bicycle store, and trimming salon for dogs.
17-5 Sarugaku-cho, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo
And, one of my favorite magazine is Obscura Magazine from Hong Kong.
The magazine usually make a feature of high-end contents (e.g. cars, fashion, cultures, and people).
Especially if you would like to know about the background of producing high quality items, I would like to recommend this magazine.
The features of back numbers are Maclaren, Alden, Tom Ford, Chanel, Undercover, Farrell Williams, NIGO, and Katsuyuki Yoshida, etc.
