Places around tokyo: Nippori textile street

I read about the Nippori textile district in a magazine earlier today, I could not wait to go to the place.

How to get there: Take the JR line to Nippori station and get out of the south exit. Afterwards take a right towards the Gasto ( ガスト)Italian fast food restaurant and go down the bridge. Head straight and you will see signs that say (Textile street) all around the corners.

 

The textile street is about a 1 kilometer long street filled with all kinds of discounted fabric and textiles. They even sell different pre made patterns for making your own things and rolls of all kinds of straps, garters, spools of thread and all kinds of fabric mostly made in Japan and some imported from the US and Korea.

  

This is my favourite store. Its called TOMATO and its 6 floors of Japanese fabric and EVERYTHING a person who loves to sew wants to find is here. I would suggest that you come prepared to shop, its quite overwhelming to see all the fabric. So get ready with what you need to look for so that it would be easier for you to decide.  A lot of the textiles were also discounted and sold for about 100 Yen per meter. Quite cheap for really good quality cotton fabric. This is a place every textile lover must visit in Tokyo! Forget Yuzawaya, this place is where you buy things discounted in Tokyo.

TEXTILE HEAVEN! ❤
