How About Participating in Events That Convey All The Good of Okayama?

Dear readers who reside in Tokyo,

As you know, there are lots of regional antenna shops in central Tokyo, but today we’d like to talk more about the Tottori Okayama Shimbashi-kan, a large-scale, interesting shop that opened in 2014!

On the first floor, specialties from both prefectures are on offer: https://setouchifinder.com/en/detail/689)

And on the 2nd floor, there is bistro café Momotenashi-ya:


In today’s article we will introduce an event that was held at the 2nd floor special event space in March 2015.

This is a shot taken at the workshop, which was called “Tottori to Okayama no kurashini fureru tei” (Exhibition to connect with living in Tottori and Okayama).

Okayama prefecture is well-known as a production area for denim, and small articles made from left over fabric are popular, too.

Can you tell what these are? They’re a certain something used in jeans…


The answer is: belt loops.

If you make a loop and punch it with a jeans rivet (the metal part used to secure the pocket corners of jeans, for example)-

– it becomes a lovely key holder. It’s cute, isn’t it? The first 100 people who arrived at the March event each received one as a gift.


All year round, various events are held in this space.

Events such as the “rice-cake making competition”, where you can eat freshly made glutinous rice cakes, and local sake sampling, are held to promote the prided products of Tottori and Okayama prefecture.

Have you ever seen… 4 people making glutinous rice cakes? They’re so fast!


All of you working in or around Shimbashi, how about it??
