This former-girls’ school building was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. All over the small and sunny hall was decorated by mt.

Have you ever know small (and really good, I LOVE the place) Ukiyo-e Ota museum is in Harajuku? Kamawanu, Tenugui speciality branch shop is on the basement floor of this museum.
Because of that, they’re selling some limited-selling tenugui design from Ukiyo-e.

I got “Hiroshige cats” tenugui. Cute and funny cats were inspired from the Ukiyo-e art of Hiroshige Utagawa.

Another one is not only selling at Harajuku branch, but all of Kamawanu shops. The beautiful hand dyed design named “rain”. This tenugui is only selling at rainy day. It’s very poetic.

I stopped by “Shibu-san Acryl (渋産アクリル)” at 8/01/COURT mini exhibition space in Hikarie.
Shibu-san is a coined word from “Shibuya (渋谷)” and “san (産 – means like born or made in)”.
This project is a collaboration of Showa Womens University and acrylic craftsman who working in Shibuya.
