Fujiya Asakusa

Description

Fujiya (富士屋) is one of the many small, yet plentiful shops along the famous street of shops known as “Nakamise-dori” in Asakusa.

Fujiya, as written on its sign, sells kimonos, happi coats, and yukata. All three of these pieces of clothing are highly pertinent to the very core of Japanese heritage and culture. Kimono literally means, “wearing thing” and has been used over the years originally as a typical “wearing thing”, but in more recent years, for special occasions such as holidays or marriages. Happi coats are often worn for festivals, and yukata are worn strictly during the summer as a casual piece of clothing.

This humble shop may seem small at first, but countless kimono, happi coats, and yukata are packed into its tight space, so there styles for every type of person. are Prices for these festive, comfortable pieces of Japanese clothing range from as little as 2000yen (~$20) to as much as 6000yen (~$60) depending on the item and quality of the fabric used.
