I’m a big fan of their tiny freebie toys for candies and capsule gashapons – of course there’s ton of the collections of their famous figurines.(but I think it’s not whole collection!)

The well-known 5 sculptors section were also stunning. From their beautiful drawings to the finished work, all of their work were very interesting.

Hot and high-humidity summer is here in Tokyo. Cool-looking and useful goods were gathered in Shibuya LOFT.

I got printed gauze hankies. Cute Alice in Wonderland motif Shirayuki and reversible space motif Mie gauze.
Gauze and tenugui textiles are really good for bringing these on summer days in Japan.
