Hello from Tokyo! Autumn is here and Tokyo is looking very pretty! Earlier this month I visited Uguisu The Little Shoppe on their grand opening day. For those of you who are into Japanese paper crafts and zakka, you may be familiar with the Uguisu online store. They have been offering Japanese goods to fans around the world since 2009. I was delighted to hear that they were opening a physical shop in Tokyo. Located in Azabudai, in the heart of the city, Uguisu The Little Shoppe offers a selection of fine quality Japanese paper items, stationery, kitchen linen, tableware and houseware, carefully handpicked by the owner, Hiki. The vintage apartment that the shop is in adds an extra dash of charm to this cute weekend shop. Be sure to add this to one of your "to visit" list when in Tokyo!

Colorful onion skin paper stickers!
