Caught the knitting fever? Here are five shops across Japan where you can order a variety of ready-made kits and specialty yarns.


At Puppy, you can find a wide variety of yarn produced by Puppy as well as imported brands — such as Husky from Italy or Soft Donegal from the U.K. — all organized by season. Knitting kits and tools are available, too. If you get stuck on a pattern, professional knitters at the store’s Shimokitazawa location can answer questions and help you complete your project. You can also order online from Puppy’s multilingual website, and your items will be dispatched within two days after ordering (excluding weekends and holidays).
