Omuraisu, Toys and Records in Shimokitazawa
If you happened to be in Shimo-Kitazawa, do not miss this shop !
The reason is not so much the choice of second hand records (there is some) but the AMAZING collection of old vintage toys (mainly from Japan, but not only).
Shuichi Suma opened this store in 1988, he chose the name of a usual traditional dish (“omelette with rice” = omuraisu) and he piled up a lot (but a LOT) of in toys from the 50’s 60’s 70’s, figurines of a large variety of Japanese heroes, and many more very rare goodies.
Records are about 5000, all from Japan.
There is no website or possibilities to buy from far away (you really have to go…).
But, Mr. Suma explains that he sees quite a lot of clients from abroad because the uniqueness of his offer.
Why I am not surprised…
