Big Fun in Small German Village

Just south of the midway point in Asagaya’s Pearl Centre Shotengai lays a whimsical little shop called 小さなドイツ村 (Chiisana Doitsu Mura or “Small German Village”).

The owner is undeniably passionate about the craftsmanship behind his imported inventory and will merrily demonstrate each item’s unique characteristics.

With my purchase of a new Christmas ornament and three advent calendars he offered me a choice of incense, coffee or tea (all German of course). Being well-equipped at home for the latter two, I chose the incense. He carefully selected six scented cones and placed them in two small baggies. Nice touch, separating the scents.

If you’re looking for a unique, non-mass-produced gift this Christmas, they are now fully stocked with hand-made nutcrackers, ornaments and advent calendars.
