This past June, Neko Box took inspiration from one of Japan's most influential 20th century illustrators – Junichi Nakahara. Nakahara's stylized illustrations created a timeless aesthetic that helped empower woman of the era. Our June issue of KAWA takes you to the boutique-filled streets of Nishi Ogikubo for a day trip of vintage antique shopping, boutique browsing and tea sipping! Take your time and enjoy this slow-paced West Tokyo suburb.
KAWA is included inside Neko Box – a monthly subscription that includes uniquely themed Japanese-made ceramics, homewares and more. It's aim is to offer insight into places that have a rich cultural background so that subscribers can mark these places on their next travel itinerary and to add value to the items included in their Neko Box.
Hello! I'm an illustrator and co-founder of Neko Box.
