Senshutei vintage Japanese toy store

Words cannot express how much of a treasure this place is. You may not find your holy grail here, as a lot of the choice items seem to be picked clean long ago. But you will find a connection to a long gone era. This shop is Nostalgia at its best. Dirty, dusty, moldy, disorganized - glorious.

This vintage toy store is a short walk from the tourist trap that is Asakusa. It is heaven, for those interested in Showa-period toys and nostalgia.

Bandai Museum

Bandai Museum Tour

In late February we had a chance to visit the Bandai Museum in Matsudo, Japan. This multi-floor museum is a shrine to all things Bandai. Chances are most of the toys in your collection were made by Bandai. If so, coming to the Bandai Museum is like your journey to Mecca.
