Asakusa – Bengara

20160826-_1090724

You can’t walk around Japan without seeing the beautiful noren hanging in the doorways of shops and restaurants, but what if you wanted a unique one to take home as a souvenir? The ability to custom order a noren combined with a friendly owner who can communicate fairly well in English makes Bengara the place for noren shopping. Besides custom orders, Bengara stocks a good variety of pre-made noren from plain cotton for those on a budget to hand-dyed works of art on linen and other materials. Besides noren, Bengara also sells a variety of affordable Japanese handicrafts, mainly of the fabric varieties.
