A great one stop shop for all your fabric needs
If you are into crafts or DIY projects, or just want to learn how to sew, visiting Nippori Fabric Town in Tokyo is a great place to start. It's easy to get to on the JR Yamanote Line (just a couple of stops away from Ueno Station) and there is basically an entire kilometer of different fabric stores stretched out across the area.
Many of my friends enjoy visiting here because the prices are great, and the range of different fabrics can't be beaten. Visiting there has inspired me to learn how to sew too - there are so many adorable designs that I want to learn how to make clothes for my kids! You can find both traditional Japanese fabrics there and modern styles with cute characters on them. There's basically something to suit just about everyone's tastes or craft project needs. It's also worth a visit if you just want a quieter spot in the city to while away some time!
