``Kokumono, or Minoru'' is the season when rice begins to ripen. Even in the hot and humid weather, you can sometimes feel the signs of autumn. We are still receiving inquiries about yukata due to the harsh lingering summer heat, but why not start preparing your autumn/winter tabi now in preparation for the full-fledged kimono season? This is the 3rd time for the tabi matching event with Mr. Gomei of Kinaya Tabi. It has been well received every time, but I am sorry that my announcement was last minute this time too! This time, we will be accepting orders for our standard white tabi, which are made from African fabrics, which are very popular, as well as those who bring their own fabrics. Regarding orders for patterned tabi socks, we will inform you again on the blog by tomorrow, so please wait for a while.

For 2 days only on September 9th (Sat) and 10th (Sun), the tabi professionals will be coming from Gyoda!

9/9 (Sat) 10 (Sun) 13:00-19:00 Last reception 18:30

Reservations are prioritized for the in-person viewing session with Kineya Tabi on September 9th (Sat) and 10th (Sun). If you are interested, please make a reservation here .

Mr. Gomei, who is in charge of our store, will be visiting us again this time from the long-established store Kinaya Tabi in Gyoda, the town of tabi making. Gyoda City, Saitama Prefecture, is located between two major rivers, the Tone River and the Arakawa River, and has abundant water and a climate suitable for cotton cultivation, and has been a thriving cotton producer since ancient times. Tabi making in this area dates back to the Edo period. At that time, the lord of Matsudaira in the Oshi domain (present-day Gyoda) encouraged the making of tabi in the Oshi castle town, and as people frequently traveled to Fukiage-juku on the Nakasendo road, it spread throughout the country and continues to be the number one producer of tabi in Japan. I'm proud. Kineya Tabi, which has a long history in Gyoda City, began its history in 1929 as Nakazawa Tabi Co., Ltd., and is still a long-established tabi store that continues to this day, changing its name to Kineya Tabi. The 2017 Sunday theater movie ``Rikuo'' was filmed with the full cooperation of Kineya Tabi, who provided the old sewing machines used in the movie and guidance on sewing techniques. A dramatization of the popular novel by Jun Ikeido, in which a century-old tabi-making company takes on the challenge of developing running shoes to ensure the survival of the company. This is a work from a few years ago, but if you haven't seen it yet, please check it out on a streaming service!

For those looking for a larger size for 2 days on 9/9 (Sat) and 10 (Sun)

Normally, samples up to 25.0cm are available, but samples over 25.5cm will also be available for 2 days only, September 9th (Sat) and 10th (Sun). If you are looking for 25.0 or above, please take this opportunity! Despite the severe heat, our store is located on the second floor of an apartment building in the Asagaya Pearl Center, which connects JR Asagaya Station and the Marunouchi Subway Line. There is an arcade that leads from the station, so you might be able to beat the heat a little. The Shinmei Shrine Festival will also be held on the same dates on September 9th (Sat) and 10th (Sun). The autumn festival brings the streets of Asagaya to life with many people, and there are stalls and mikoshi (portable shrines) entering the shrine, so please come and visit Asagaya while walking around Asagaya.
