You’d miss Fuji-Torii if you weren’t looking for it. Sandwiched between Kiddyland and the flashy Gyre Building, it looks exactly like what it is: an old, quiet antiques shop straight from the 1950s.
Opened in 1949, Fuji-Torii trades in high-quality art, antiques, and newer pieces. In terms of designs and motifs, the goods on display lean heavily towards more conservative and ‘traditional’ styles - pieces that wouldn’t look out of place in, for example, an expensive Japanese restaurant.
Among their wares are lovely sake vessel and cup sets, woodblock print reproductions, handmade fans, lacquer trays and antique Imariware plates. It’s a great place to pick up some statement pieces for your home.
Of course, a place like Fuji-Torii prices its wares accordingly. Their pricing is also reflected in its JPY10,000 minimum spend policy for tax-free shopping - most places set the bar at JPY5400. This shop is for a slightly more affluent and discerning crowd, but it’s perfect if you have a little extra cash to spend.
