Recommendation

Doug Jaeger Says

Zakka is like a community design store of Japanese influence. They stock a lot of limited-edition products. Every year they do a T-shirt design contest where they have designers submit a T-shirt and the one that gets voted the best they actually produce and sell through their store. They also have a drop area for promoting design-related events. It's kind of a place where I'll hang out if I'm having a creative mental block and use it as a library or maybe pick up some stuff. They actually sell DVDs with typography and different kinds of inspiration. There is a lot of unique clothing, mostly t-shirts but also little hats and stuffed animals. It's definitely an inspiring place where you can see a lot of stuff that is popular in Japan, mixed together with stuff that's popular locally.
