Recently, I’m really into Tenugui. I want to replace all towels in my house to Tenugui!
Today, I will introduce a special Tenugui shop, “Nijiyura”.
“What design do you like?”
Do you want Japanese style designs for your souvenir or gift when you visit Japan? That’s nice. How about Osaka style designs such as “Taiyouno-tou”, Osaka Castle, and etc. My favorites are wisteria flowers, Japanese hydrangeas, and dots designs. I have bought Tenugui of these designs for my headband from this Tenugui shop, Nijiyura. The shop assistant, who is very nice, told me how to make a headband by Tenugui, and that is really easy! It looks so stylish and pretty to me.
The shop assistant also told me that this shop recently becomes very popular to people from overseas.
“Workshop of Tenugui”
They have some workshops to make your own tenugui. Unfortunately, I don’t know when they will have such workshops. If you are interested in the workshop and have some opportunity to visit there while you stay in Osaka, please check it at Nijiyura.
“Tenugui shop, Nijiyura”
The main shop of Nijiyura is located in Nakazakicho near Umeda. There are other branches in Tokyo, Umeda Lukua, Kyoto, and Kobe. It is a five minute walk to Nakazakicho from LOFT shop in Umeda. Recently, Nakazakicho becomes very popular to people from overseas, and of course, to young Japanese people as well. This is because there are many pretty shops and cafes around there. Tenjinbashisuji-6cho-me near Nakazakicho is where you will find a lot of shopping arcades. You should go there as well. This area is also popular for people from overseas. I will talk about Tenjinbashisuji-6chome next time!
How is this? How about a pretty Tenugui for your gift and souvenir? I will strongly recommend you to go to Nijiyura. Please check “にじゆら” on instaglam, twitter, or facebook. I have put the URL below, although they don’t have any English version unfortunately. But you can still check the designs.
