Both a studio and a retail store, this leather shop stands out from the rest. Leather artisan Yuichiro Murakami, who used to be an architect, really puts his heart – and the traditional techniques he learned in Italy – into the products. Oozing simplicity and functionality, his pieces also make for great gifts. A number of items from M+ are also sold in other stores nationwide, including at Ito-ya in Ginza and Loft in Shibuya. However, this Kuramae outlet also offers exhibits on how the leather ages, so you can check both what you pay for and what you will have paid for.
