Hello all,
This is my first post here.  I am new to Japanese crafts.  I have found that I love Oshie.  Kurumie, or oshie, is another traditional Japanese art (or craft) form that uses padded pieces of fabric or paper.

Can you tell me does Yuzawaya carry the kits to do this art form?  Also right now I am currently in Misawa (moving at the end of the year to Yokosuka area).  Someone mentioned Tokai in Hachinohe.  Would that craft store carry it as well?

Thanks in Advance for your help.

Hi !
There used to be a store in white pole road that used to sell Oshi-e kits - it was called Nakashio Souvenir Shop. They seem to have temporarily closed or moved elsewhere (I don't know where though) for the american village construction.

As for Yuzawaya carrying Oshi-e kits - yes I think they do - you have to ask a Japanese friend to help you out with your purchase on the web.

Craft Tokai in Hachinohe - stocks a few but not that much - maybe too few. Nakashio in Misawa used to carry a lot as I also bought a few from them.

I purchase most of my Oshi-e kits from Tanaka Washi Company when I go to Sapporo or Tokyo (Asakusabashi) - but they also sell online.

If you check with the other craft store "Olive" in Misawa at white pole road - they might be able to order them for you - I would suppose they would have some sort of catalogue on hand that you can choose from (any old catalog will do as there are rarely new designs).

If I have time - I will check for you where Nakashio Souvenir shop has moved - the lady in the shop speaks English very well too.

I hope that helps.
