11AM – 7PM Mondays through Saturdays
12PM - 5PM Sundays


We are 3 blocks from the Market Street Blue Line's 2nd Street stop and 5 blocks from the 5th street stop, as well as SEPTA bus routes 33, 57, 42, and 21.
On-street meter parking is available at most times.
There are lots of bars, restaurants & cafes, historical sites, and boutiques in the immediate vicinity.




There is a very small (barely there) step and slight lip at the bottom of our front door. We do not have a ramp. There are no stairs to climb and the space is spacious for wheelchairs, walkers, and strollers. We frequently burn scented candles and incense. Because of the pandemic, we have removed our sitting chairs.




Omoi Zakka Shop is a stationery & life goods store operating in downtown Philadelphia since 2006. We offer a selection of items that we like, use, and believe in, with an emphasis on thoughtful design, affordability, and a decent sense of humor. Omoi Zakka Shop is a nod to the many amazing Japanese boutiques with evocative foreign names, which planted the seeds of inspiration that led to our existence. Omoi sounds like "oh boy". If you like stationery, staff selected books, considerate gifts, and useful things for your daily life, we invite you to stop by. Our name means thoughtful daily goods.

We recently closed our first shop in order to move Omoi's base of operations into our larger sister store, opened in 2015 at 41 S 3rd Street in the historic Old City district. Our original location was a much loved, very cozy, 500 square foot storefront on 1608 Pine Street, tucked along the edge of the fashionable Rittenhouse neighborhood. It took us 15 years and a pandemic to consider that perhaps we had outgrown the space. For more on this topic, visit our blog for A Brief History of Omoi, along with store tours, and other entertaining reads.

Omoi is also an official TRAVELER’S COMPANY (TRC) Partner Shop. Makers of the original TRC TRAVELER'S Notebook, the company produces a leather cover journaling system in 2 sizes, with various format notebook inserts and accessory items. Its versatility appeals to a variety of creative needs, from planning to watercoloring. As a Partner Shop, Omoi is a reliable source for everything TRAVELER'S, including rare items available only in-store at Partner Shops worldwide. We'll be happy to see you.
