Tsuchiya Kaban Karuizawa Studio：A new challenge for Tsuchiya Kaban
It all started with a single sewing machine. Tsuchiya Kaban, which was founded in 1965, opened a school bag or randoseru studio in Karuizawa in June 2015 as the first store in Nagano. Karuizawa is an elegant and historic city. The cityscape, where Japanese and Western cultures meet, has similarities with bag making. It was the perfect place to choose for a milestone year.
The store, which stands in the woods, has a modern Japanese-style appearance that makes you feel nostalgic. The stone pavement leading to the entrance is carved with tools used for leather work, and its playfulness is also charming. The interior of the store is a wide open space for customers to "visit with their family and make memories." From randoseru to leather goods for adults, products that the whole family can enjoy line the shelves. The attached workshop can be viewed through the glass window, and customers can enjoy the process until the ordered randoseru arrives.
A luxurious time for adults and children to enjoy high-quality leather. When you visit Karuizawa, visit Tsuchiya Kaban. It is definitely worth it.
