Focusing on antiques, clothes, crafts and life, Classico feels like an unofficial general store that can be relied upon to service the needs of local residents, workers and visitors.

Drawing on his considerable experience in the fashion industry, owner Ryu Takahashi has filled his compact two-room shop with a curated selection of lifestyle goods including button-down shirts, footwear, cleaning tools and tableware.

With an eye for well-made items, Takahashi is able to provide an insight into each of his products and the role they can play in your day-to-day life.

The result is one of Yanaka’s local treasures: a lifestyle shop where new wardrobe staples and daily essentials are just waiting to be discovered.
