It has been 5 years and 4 months since the opening of the Takaido shop. In this time, everyone in the neighbour- hood has supported us very, very warmly, and for this we are filled with gratitude. Thank you very, very much!
In addition to this warm, local support, and although quite a distance from the local station, many people have come from afar to visit us. People have even come from abroad. We would like to extend to all of you a very warm and sincere 'Thank you!'
Now, however, we have outgrown these premises and for this reason the shop will move in September to a new, bigger premises close to Setagaya Daita station on the Odakyu line.
Although quite near the station, the new location is a little difficult to find. However, in a lovely house surrounded by big trees, it really could be somewhere Totoro might live.
The new shop is scheduled to open on the 10th October, 2013. On the 2nd floor of the house, above the shop, there will be a cafe (although under separate management from the shop) so you will be able to really take your time and gently unwind.
The new shop is a 3 minute walk from Setagayadaita station and 7 minute walk from either Shimokitazawa or Shindaita station on the Inokashira line.
We would all like to welcome you to our new shop and are greatly looking forward to seeing you there. With very best regards from Shirohige & everyone at the Cream Puff Factory
