4. Shop Review: Robber Gabriera

Robber Gabriera is located just 2 minutes walk from the north exit of Shimokitazawa Station. It is very close to "Lush".

Setagaya-ku, Kitazawa 2-34-10 Michiru Bld. 1F Phone: 03-3481-6877
Hours of Operation: 11a.m. - 8:30p.m. (weekdays) 11a.m. - 9p.m. (weekdays)

Many of the clothing stores in Shimokitazawa are of no interest to foreigners, mainly because everything is in small sizes and many stores sell only cheap used clothing.

Robber Gabriera is different, there is an interesting combination of goods for sale. Some clothing, some jewelry, some pocketbooks, and some odds and ends. If you are looking for cool t-shirts and jeans with a Japanese flavor, this is the place. They have large size t-shirts and excellent designs. The clothing here would be a huge hit with teens and college kids back home.

I bought a round purse/makeup case made from a pair of used blue jeans for only 1000 yen. I also bought a stylish men's necklace for 1500 yen.

Before visiting home, I plan to stop here again to pick up some t-shirts, they'll make great gifts.
