Wa-no-komono Bando


A Japanese goods shop to enjoy four seasons.

Diagonally across from Hachiman Post Office, a Japanese miscellaneous goods store "Bando" where unique cats such as "Gujo Odori Cat" and "Ayu Fishing Cat" are selected by the cat lover's owner. Speaking of cats, you may think of fish. You can also buy Nagaragawa River goods drawn by popular picture book writer Mr Murakami Yasunari at the store. Bando's original hand towels, handkerchiefs, stationery, postcards and other Japanese-style accessories are perfect as souvenirs. Together with handmade items such as indigo-dyed accessories and old cloth work, as well as various incense from Shoyeido, are all popular among locals. When you take a walk in the castle town, please be sure to stop by Bando with a traditional large shop curtain as a mark.
