Shop for Trendy Japanese Souvenirs
Around the corner from the Hokusai Museum lies MERIKOTI, a colorful shop dedicated to modern interpretations of traditional Japanese knitted footwear.
Merikoti specializes in knitted Japanese sandals that are meant to be worn in the house, and they’ve devised bright, new patterns to update this craft into a trendy fashion statement. Plus, they have toe socks.
A pair of house shoes from Merikoti will run you 7,560 yen, which is a bit on the expensive side, but each pair is uniquely handcrafted. You can even attend a workshop where you can make your own pair for 5,400 yen. Reservations can be made online or by phone.
