FUKUI – local speciality shop / ふくい南青山

There are so many places to visit in Japan, but your time is limited!

IFukui_5_sf it is a case, why don’t you visit so called “Antenna shop” which is not a place selling antenna but local speciality shops which are operated by local governments to promote the industries and its products. There are more than 50 those shops in Tokyo originally targeted people in Tokyo, but I recommend you to visit those shops to get a sense of “local” without visiting each place.
While I was walking in Aoyama area, the posh area of Tokyo, I run into a stature of dinosaur

Fukui is the famous for dinosaur, eye glasses, Japanese hand-made paper, good Japanese sake, and much more!

南青山を歩いていたら、恐竜の銅像を発見!そう、ここは福井県のアンテナショップ。291 Style (フクイスタイル)は「ふだん使いの、ちょっと素敵なもの」がテーマのコンセプトショップ。福井県の伝統工芸を今使えるデザインで表現した生活雑貨、お酒や食品などが紹介されている。福井と言えば、メガネの生産シェア日本一。メガネのフレームを技術を骨組みに応用した傘など、個性あふれる商品が並んでいる。
