Arts & Science
A pretty little store that looks like it could be right at home in New York City's West Village, Arts & Science sells high-quality, beautifully made clothing and accessories. The clothes are all natural colors – army green, heather grey, white, cream and light.
Located across the street from its inspiration, Gallery Yukei is a small shop from the Tawaraya Ryokan family. You can purchase the famous ryokan’s slippers, bath amenities, sheets and bedding along with a range of artisan gifts like ceramic tea cups. True Tawaraya devotees can ensure a future of sleeping futon-style by purchasing one to bring home.

A retail shop and workshop, Tezomeya sells T-shirts and other cotton garments that have been dyed using only natural resources such as dried plants, bayberry tree bark and palm tree nuts. Almost all come from kampo, Chinese medicine. In turn, the clothes have a very natural, organic look and feel to them.
