Showa Japan Shibamata Tokyo Dango Sweets Store Model


This item is in stock and ready to ship.


The Showa Japan Tokyo Neighborhood Dango Sweets Store Model is a brilliant recreation of the kind of local shop that people in east Tokyo in the postwar period would visit to buy themselves a treat. Now almost consigned to the pages of history (you might be lucky to spot one in some areas of Tokyo) these neighborhood stores stock dango sweets colorful Japanese dumplings made from rice.


This paper model kit gives you a chance to assemble this icon from a bygone Tokyo. The detail is remarkable from the shop sign and tiled roof to the dango displays complete with price tags. There's even a nod to the new symbol of the Katsushika east Tokyo area the Skytree which is helping revive this old part of the city again. Japanophiles will spot that this store is based on the Shibamata one from the "Tora-san" series of Shochiku films.


The Showa Japan Tokyo Neighborhood Dango Sweets Store Model features:

  • Based on dango sweets store in Shibamata Katsushika (east Tokyo) and the "Tora-san" movies
  • Papercraft model kit (self-assembly)
  • Instructions: Japanese
