I am a military wife who just moved to Sasebo.
Is there anybody on here familiar with the area?

I am looking for a craft store or somewhere to buy knitting supplies.

check this post for links - these shops have branches all over Japan ... though you might need help in reading the websites as they are all in Japanese...


Check with your family support center - the Japanese staff (culture coordinator/manager) should be able to help you...

Good luck.

Sorry, I don't know the area...

But... you can find a lot of knitting supplies in the 100 yen stores now... I was really shocked to start seeing stuff show up on the racks.  In the big cities we have ABC Craft stores... but I find that they are really expensive.  If you can hunt down a few hundred yen stores you can really find a lot of what you'd need.

If you have a book off in your town (used book store) they often have a craft section that has lots of (CHEAP) used craft books for inspiration~

good luck~ Grin

100yen is good for acrylic yarns.

I've never been to sasebo though so I can't help but had to check this thread because Sasebo is my hometown's sister city and I'm going to try to make it down there this summer.. ^_^V

I did find this store in Nagasaki City though -

might be a bit far for just a yarn trip but if you're heading down there for any other reason you could check it out.

If you are looking for a better selection than the Y100 shops try JUSCO they usually have a small craft section but the variety of stuff is pretty good particularly if you are looking for natural fibers which most Y100 stores don't have. Also they have some really cute fabrics.

If you can I'd recommend walking around for a few hours. I found a neat little craft shop in Toyota doing just that.

Also I thought I'd add some Kanji / Katakana:
