Tips from foursquare

  • The Standard on 11/15/10

    CA (Shop) This Abbot Kinney shop is filled with household items that you never knew you needed before! It specializes in modern Japanese housewares, gifts and furniture. Definitely stop in!

  • Lucky Magazine on 11/09/11

    Until we actually make it to Tokyo, Tortoise conveniently stocks lots of the stuff we’d love to buy there: wooden bears, iron kettles and graphic bamboo fans, all imported from Japan.

  • Casey G. on 09/02/11

    Walk through the store's back door to the secret-ish part in the back with even more stuff.

  • Brett H. on 10/18/13

    make sure u make it to the back gallery through the store!
