This shop is a virtual ode to the Mrs. Grossman sticker brand, which has been around since 1979. It oozes a very friendly vibe, and makes you feel at home among the myriad of stickers, which are regularly re-stocked to make sure the top sellers are always there. And there are so many: from old favourites to seasonal newbies and even versions that are currently out of production – over 1,000 types of stickers for you to browse. They're also presented in a slightly different manner than at other stationery or sticker shops, with most on long rolls instead of in a prepackaged flat parcel. Prices are based on a tiered, numbered system you'll find on the flipside of the sticker roll, but seeing as some of them go for as little as ¥32, you'll surely be able to afford something here – whether you're a salaried adult or a kid spending hard-saved pocket money.
