Washi tape in London

I'm looking for a shop - a physical shop - that has a large selection of Washi tapes. I'm going to be in London later in the week, so could get most places central or accessible by tube. There are millions of online sellers, but I'm trying to design a card and want to make sure that the colours and patterns are going to look right together, so I'd really rather see it in person if possible. I only have small shops like Hobbycraft etc near me, that do a selection of a few patterns - but I know that there are some specialist scrapbooking or card shops that have hundreds. I just don't know where they are! Could also get many places in East Anglia.

<<http://www.bladerubberstamps.co.uk Blade Rubber Stamps>> is near the British Museum. It's definitely quirky arty crafty but I haven't been for years so not sure if it'll do Washi tape. Great place to visit anyway though and not far from Tottenham Court Road.

Ye gads, #LinkFail. But you get the idea!

The Japan Centre (Piccadilly) might also sell it if you're in the mood to shop around

oh I think I remember when they used to be in Neal's Yard, though I might be remembering the wrong name. I wondered where they'd gone. They were pretty much stamps galore then, but they might have branched into other crafts now too.

oh yes, Japanese shops might be good; I can try there too if I have time. There used to be a Japanese shop near St Paul's as well, though that's rather further away, and I don't remember what it's called anyway to check if it's still there!!

It looks like the London Graphic Centre might also have some.

I think the Japanese shop near St Paul's has closed. It used to have beautiful paper. But that was about 15 years ago!

I've seen it at JP Books which is just around the corner from Japan Centre...
