Mom and Pop Store, Nagoya
What is so brilliant about this place is that Taka's passion in life is vintage pre 1950's Americana. So he has painfully sourced a lot of the items for sale in his shop from small independent, and like the name, mom and pop business's in the US. Places that have been making the same products for decades. The quaility of this stuff is amazing. In a world of cheaply made crap this is like a breath of fresh air, it aint cheap but the workmanship is second to none. A pair of boots, or gloves etc from here will last for many years. If it wasn't for people like Taka they would of gone out of business and become just a distant memory many moons ago.
