Going to Japan -- want a show collar or leash?

    I leave for Japan on Thursday and will be going to Adachiya for collars and leashes. Anyone who wants me to pick up something for them, contact me with the color, size, etc and payment before I go. The entire store is devoted to Nihon Ken and they have other fun items (like Shiba sized yukatas and happi coats, stickers, towels, figurines, "normal" leashes and collars, etc) but I can't promise what else they may have when I go.

    Note: They don't always have every size/color of show leash in stock. However I will visit on the 19th to place an order to pick up on the 31st. So if something isn't in stock it may still be possible.

    I don't need leashes or collars, but if you find anything with Kai Ken like a stuffy or figurine or a bowl or something with Kai on it, can you ping me? I will be surprised if they do, but I guess if anywhere would, it would be Adachiya.

    If there was a happi coat that would fit Meitou that woukd be cool. But if they are only shiba sized then maybe there would be one.

    Here are the show leashes and collars:

    And here's a little page about the clothing, but you can see it doesn't show much of whats available:

    The site claims to have clothes for large dogs, but I don't recall anything being big enough for my Akitas. Still, I think there was stuff that would fit the medium breeds for sure.

    @WhoBitMe @mdokic Please add me on Facebook or send me your phone number so I can message you with pics of anything I think you might like.

    I really like those exercise slip leads, but I'm not sure I want to drop 100+ dollars on slip leads for all the Kishu... ughhh, choices...

    @Crispy I know someone who can make them just like that if you want me to ask his price. Since its not a show lead and they're just cotton... it doesn't have to be from Japan right? XD

    EDIT: He's not selling them at this time.

    @PoetikDragon - damnit. Maybe I can figure out how to make them. They're probably not difficult, it's just a matter of finding materials I like. I really like theirs.

    It's really easy to make those slip leads.
    I make them myself. This blog is in Japanese, but the pictures should give you an idea of how to do it.
