products

lots of assorted goods from china, but also weird stuff from all over asia. mosque alarm clocks, jesus tea pots, medical posters from thailand, cushions with printed photos of the swiss alps, jewellery, t-shirts, mao ze dong polystyrene wall reliefs. this is all real -- not the cheesy reproductions of the same rubbish that you usually find in shops like this. this is exquisite high-quality CHA-CH-KA.

manic kitsch shop and according to michiko it's over 35 years old. apparently, it's a big design inspiration to paul smith who pops in every time he's in tokyo.
