Nadiff in Aoyama to Close

As spotted in Momus’ latest post, the Nadiff store in Aoyama will close by the end of the month, to be re-opened later this year in a new location and under a new name. From their website:

Artshop NADiff which celebrated the tenth anniversary in March at Omote-sando, Tokyo, will be closed by the end of May because Casolare Harajuku, the building the shop is in, is expected to be pulled down and rebuilt.

We are very grateful for your continued favor through the years. The shop’s name NADiff which has been so familiar to those who love art will be used as ever as an abbreviation for its holding company, New Art Diffusion Co.,Ltd.

We are looking forward to seeing you soon to share pleasure of art with you again. When we moved from Ikebukuro to Omote-sando ten years ago, it took almost a year in making preparations. This time, we believe we will be ready to start in less time at a new place, in a new building and by a new name. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

I never knew they started out in Ikebukuro!
