"Tsubaki-no-kura" sells Japanese misc. goods with foot-bath space.
The main attraction of this modern Japanese goods, "Tsubaki-no-kura", is the foot-bath.
Coming out from the back, a Camellia-centric garden with flowers from all four seasons as well as a Camellia foot-bath come into view.
After enjoying a nice walk around Kawagoe, it's nice to take a breather in this peaceful, little oasis.
Entering the first floor, one can enjoy a rich ginger ale and ginger tea at "Kura Ginger" (ginger-cellar)). The ginger used is all grown in Japan. One can also enjoy the red bean-filled yam bread, a Kawagoe specialty. Only one-hundred are backed each day, so get them while they're hot!
The joining of "Kura-Ginger" and the Camellia foot-bath into the "Ashi-yu Bar" (foot-bath Bar) is this establishment's man attraction.
Appearance of the building is old style warehouse, but the inside of the store is like shrine.
Very strange looking interior incorporates the beauty parts of Japan.
Original washcloth or applesauce, local crafts, etc. are nicely displayed for sale.
If you proceed to the back, there is a "Tsubakiya shop" that sells local foods from all over Japan where you can taste vinegar and domestic jam.
