Dispatch from Tokyo: Chiruru Koenji

Contributor post by Ros of Polkaros 

Chiruru is a cute vintage shop located in Koenji, a small town in west Tokyo. Stepping into the store feels like going back in time to 1970s Japan. Besides vintage clothing and accessories, Chiruru also carries a wide selection of vintage supplies such as fabric, laces and buttons for your craft projects. There is also a collection of handmade lampshades, clothes and plush dolls by local craftsman. Some of whom have been making their craft since the 1970's!
