Bingoya. Shinjuku, Japan

Visited Bingoya, located at a “country-side” of Shinjuku, after nearly 10 years, I reconfirmed that it is still the best folk craft shop in Japan as far as I know. If you are into Mingei (folk craft) movement or are looking for genuine Japanese stuff, it is almost impossible to leave there keeping your wallet in your pocket or bag. Say you worry about next month bills, you better not to go there or fix a padlock onto your pocket/bag before you enter. Although I am one of those who has financially no extra room (remember this was right before my trip to Hawaii), I left the door literally having my hands full with shopping bags.
