Six floors of craft

Yesterday I sought out Yuzawaya, after reading Suzy's post on her blog Floating World Views. Yuzawaya is about 6 floors of craft supplies. It has some wonderful Japanese stationery on one of the floors, oodles of fabric, and everything else in between. I could have spent hours marvelling over the cupcake baking equipment but I had a twitchy husband with me (who hates craft stores).

The quilting fabric collection was very extensive, with all the Japanese lines I recognise from home. Their fat quarters were rather impressively displayed in little, orderly drawers.

See Suzy's very concise directions on how to find it. I didn't take them with me so wasted much time looking for a shop that was only labelled in Japanese characters. This is a great one stop shop for any crafting supplies you might need.

My husband calls this type of store a "man-killing" store. He thinks all man-killing stores should have a lounge for the men to retreat to while the woman shops. I think this store looks fabulous and when was the last time I was in a store with more that one floor?

Thanks for all the wonderful info on shopping in Tokyo! I'm wondering what the average price is for a fat quarters shown in your photo? Trying to get a sense of the fabric prices.
