Variety shop “Damira”~Tokyo’s best well-kept-secret place~

珍スポなど(chin-spot,B-class spot)

Tokyo, as you know, has tons of thousands of interesing places for tourists to visit. However, those places(so-called ‘tourist spot’) you may find on the internet or in a guidebook are too famous for everyone and always crowded with tourists. 

It is true these places are worth visiting one in your lifetime, but if you are a dilettante (like me) looking for something different, or have come to Japan many times getting bored of normal tourist spot, you must visit “Damira” exclusively selling “Daming(駄民具)” in Nogata culture center.

What is “Daming(駄民具)”?

駄民具(Daming) is composed of two words: 「駄」= “crappy, useless” and「民具」= “everyday articles, toys”. This Japanese word is a coined one by the owners of the shop so that we can’t find it in the Japanese dictionary. It’s a completely original term exclusively made for the stuff sold here. 

In their official twitter account, they define Daming more concisely: 

  1. Tend to be thrown away by mom
  2. I know it’ s a waste of money, but want it
  3. Feel like I protected an endangered species when I got it

Damira is run by a couple, one in charge of the first floor, and the other in charge of the second floor, creating two different artspaces.

So many stuff hanged on the right wall. The woman sitting in the bottom right corner is the owner.

When I was at the shop talking with the onwer, 

The face-portrait on the wall is the infamous Japanese criminal. The owner said she showed the image of this criminal to the painter and had him draw this portrait without telling who he is.
