Guess which one is better? Hakuhinkan of course. It’s a must stop for me every time I visit Tokyo.
I think I’ll never tire of cute things and colorful stationery.
Hakuhinkan is located in Ginza, right across from Ten-ichi, where I always get my tendon.

It became my favorite pasalubong and traveling accessory. The big-mouth coin purse opens up so you can see all your foreign coins in one go. I like the colorful purses because they’re easy to find in my mostly black bag collection.
It comes in other shapes and functions:


This is the one I really want to have!

But hey, they have the other pouches at Fully Booked and STUFF at Rustan’s.
I just bought a red coin purse today at Php 550, which is cheaper than the Japanese price.
