Look for the colorful gears at the entrance!

Loft is a shop specializing in miscellaneous daily goods that are popular in Japan, including stationery, character goods, cosmetics, kitchen wares, and interior items.
Today we visit Shibuya Loft, the flagship store just a 5-minute walk from Shibuya Station. With seven floors and about 80,000 goods to choose from, Shibuya Loft is a hub for Japanese trends that always has the latest items on hand.

To prevent coronavirus infection, the entrance and exit are separated in a one-way direction, with a temperature checker and alcohol disinfectant at the entrance.

As a measure against Covid-19, entrance and exit doors are separate, and thermometers and hand sanitizer is available at the entrance.
Koyumi Yokokawa of Loft's Public Relations Office walks us through Shibuya Loft's latest summer items to help you beat the heat.
"Many people are spending more time at home now, so home goods are gaining popularity. Innovative and functional items, such as handy fans and eco-friendly goods that don't require charging, are also selling well," says Yokokawa in regards to 2022's popular items.
