I personally use the comb and Tsubaki oil for my hair. Compared now with the time I haven’t used the oil, I feel that my hair is becoming better. Before, my hair was fragile and weak, but now it is becoming stronger and more shinny. If you are looking for a hair accessory for yourself or as a souvenir, you can have a look in this shop as there are many selections lined in the shelves!

If you imagine the Japanese ladies wearing Kimono, they often put this kind of hair accessories. There are many selections in this shop, but if you choose a small one, you can put it on your hair in your daily life. Usually, when Japanese ladies wear Kimono, they put rather big hair accessories on the special occasions such as Coming of Age ceremony, New Year and graduation ceremonies.
