Ichizawa Shinzaburo Hanpu has three different brands, and they all have distinct tags on them.
The first one is this, Shinzaburo Hanpu in green letters, the basic line. The products of this line have simple, classic designs.
Shinzaburo Hanpu on a blue background means that the products are more colorful, often with a pattern on them. The bags are bolder than those of the previous line, but they are cute, and the bag in the picture even has little Astro Boys on it.
These bags are a reproduction of a classic bag, and they have the logo of Ichizawa Hanpu on them surrounded by a red border. The classic design is something that makes your eyes stop, and there is something very Japanese about these bags too.
So they have three different lines, and they all have a different feel to them and use different materials. I hope you will carefully choose the line you like the best!
If you buy bags for over 20,000 yen, you can get them tax-free! Their tax-free counter is on the second floor. Remember to bring your passport with you.
