For people who are looking for AUTHENTIC Japanese items, especially for hard (and very hard) to find ones - this place is the final stop. I was looking for a school uniform, searched all sites I could think of and found thousands of Chinese "Japanese" ones. Then I came across this place. When you get the item from here and see the quality of it, the condition, even the way they pack and ship it you will recognize the true Japanese excellence. Every time you put it on, you are happy you bought it. I found the prices to be very reasonable as well. I had multiple purchases made from them and find it the best. They also will help you figure out what you are looking for if you are not sure. You are not just a customer there - they REALLY care. One of those places that you want to come back to again and again. The only better thing would be to go to Japan.

This is my favourite Japanese shop in the UK hands down. Not only has it got such a range of items (something for everyone, even those that want for nothing), many that are difficult to get hold of abroad, but also the quality, the knowledge that comes with it is amazing.
The owners, Vivien and Kenji, are wonderful! Super helpful, they really go the extra mile and then some. All round genuine and wonderful people.
Another outstanding selling point is that the items, are so reasonably priced. The quality is incredible. Even the well loved vintage items have so much more time left in them and are very well looked after, always packed carefully and beautifully.
When you order clothing it comes very beautifully folded with a little bit of information, just to remind you how to wash it correctly to make sure you get the best out of your purchase.
The listings clearly have a lot of care and time put in, making sure you have so many photos and honest information so that you know exactly what you are getting, which isn't always the case with other online shops. Not to mention that all traditional clothing is labelled correctly, instead of calling…
I ordered clothing from Someya Shop and it was received the next day! First class service. The items were top quality and accurately described. Thank you so much! We will look forward to using you again and wholeheartedly recommend you to our friends!!

Bought an Obi and it is perfect, matched up with the photos, was wonderfully packaged and the quality is amazing.
Obi was very reasonably priced, and shipping was fast.
This is a wonderful store and I would very highly recommend this store to anyone looking for Japanese items.
I am 100% happy with my experience with Someya Shop. The vintage Japanese mailbox that I purchased was exactly as described. Communication was quick and very helpful. The item was shipped in a timely manner and I received it in great condition. I would do business with Someya Shop again.

I ordered 4m fabric and a lovely yukata and they arrived promptly, well packaged and in excellent condition. The images on the website were an accurate representation of the products and the colours are so vibrant and beautiful on both the yukata and the fabric. I am very pleased with my purchase and thank Someya Shop for a lovely service.
Have made 2 purchases, in each case goods were as described, extremely well packaged and arrived swiftly. Great service.
Well done . Thank you M.M.
What a wonderful resource! I'm in love with vintage Japanese clothing, some of which can be rare and very hard to find, but Someya Shop always has a wonderful selection, and for very reasonable prices too. Please keep up the great job... I really appreciate it! Highly recommended.
