Alice’s TOKYO Walk vol.15〈omochabako〉at Jiyu-gaoka

モデル・斉藤アリスが英語と日本語で東京を案内! Alice’s TOKYO Walk vol.15〈omochabako〉at Jiyu-gaoka


“Oh...I never knew there was a place like this!”
If I go a little farther from my favorite areas, there is so much more TOKYO that I haven’t yet found. So, I go out in search of new discoveries.

Let's make organic basic. I went to a shop that carries goods which are good to both people and nature. The name of the shop is "Omochabako" which means "toy box" in Japanese, because they originally got their start as a kindergarten.


It's a laundry detergent from Germany made from natural materials. I have been using it for two years now. When I dry my clothes indoors, there is a fine scent of lavender and lemongrass in the room.


They hold various events regularly. I took part in a crafting class with woolen. That day, we made flower broaches.


First of all, I was taught how to use a felt needle while watching the teacher demonstrate. We fold a piece of wool and prick it with the needle. Then it gradually begins to take the shape of a flower petal.


After we make 5 petals, we tie them together and form a flower. I used colorful threads taken from Indian saris for decoration. How did the broach come out, you ask?

みんな上手〜! 集中してものづくりをする時間って無心になれて、なんとなく頭もスッキリする。ストレス発散にいいかも。

Everyone did great! When I concentrate on making something, it clears my mind. It's a good way to relieve stress.

梅の花のブローチ、似合ってるかな? 材料はもちろんオーガニック。有機栽培の草で育った羊の毛を植物などで染めているんだって。

I made my broach in the shape of a plum blossom. Does it suit me? Of course, we only used organic materials. The sheep that provide the wool are fed organic grass, and the dye used for the wool is made from plants.
