|Admission: I didn't take a pic of the outside of the shop. I found this pic online. I'll swap it out the next time I'm in Ueno.|
And the end of that preamble brings me to Yamashiroya. This isn't a new store at all. The multi-level shop in Ueno is something of an institution when it comes to more mainstream toys like anime toys, robots, big licensed properties, and so on. But on a recent pass by (Itokin Park, Irene, and I were on our way to Ameyoko Street), I happened to notice in a street side display that they had some indie sofubi. So into the store we went, and we found some nice stuff.
