Hachijo Mingei Yamashita (八丈民芸やました)
"This folk craft store is located about five minutes away from Hachijojima Airport by car, distinguished by the retro play equipment placed at its front. They deal in goods related to Hachijojima's traditional silk fabric ""Kihachijo,"" which is based on three colors: yellow, marigold and black. The most popular ""Kihachijo sable"" is a lovely Hachijojima handmade shortbread cookie in the shape of a kimono. Its rich flavor, which comes from an ample usage of Hachijo butter, makes it a popular item with many repeat buyers. There are plenty of smaller items, too, that make use Kihachijo obi cloth, such as wallets and card cases. Searching for your favorite item is fun. The store holds hands-on looming classes, using real looms, so that you can feel closer to Kihachijo (reservations required)."

The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It’s hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world’s tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you’re in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
