Tokyo Shopping Guide

Tokyo is a shopping paradise made up of smaller districts, each offering its own retail personality and style. From cool vintage to haute couture, T-shirts to kimonos, and street markets to upscale department stores, Tokyo has it all.


This district is arguably Tokyo’s busiest—it’s a major transport, commercial, entertainment, dining, and of course, shopping hub. There are a handful of malls, including the upmarket Isetan; and one of Japan’s largest electronics shops, Yodobashi Camera Shinjuku. Branches of popular national retailers like Don Quijote, Tokyu Hands and Muji are all within walking distance of Shinjuku Station.

Overall I really recommend this experience to anyone interested in samurai or anyone wanting a unique set of souvenirs.
Like others, we had a wonderful experience that is different from the standard kimono one, and it didnt omit children.

I would very highly recommend this place when shopping for a gift, a personalised senjafuda makes a wonderful gift for close friends and loved ones.
I was really happy with the senjafudas that I received, and it was an added bonus to get to wear a nice yukata for a photo-shot in the shop, along with the staff being nice enough to give me a map showing tourist...

We browsed the shop after and were able to snag a recent printing of The Great Wave, carved by Mr. Bull himself, who even insisted on repairing a minor flaw in the paper in front of us.
What started as a hastily organised activity to do on a rainy day in Tokyo turned into an unexpected highlight of our stay - and one I cannot recommend doing highly enough!

... and ready made notebooks, fountain pens and like 18 different types of ink colours (couldn’t resist getting the purple and teal colours for myself) and even a dedicated section for travel related merchandise.
We picked out so many unique items which are made in Japan and would make such perfect gifts rather than the run-of-the-mill souvenirs at airports and tourist traps.

I made my way past all the beautiful flowing artwork and headed toward the back left, look upwards for a glimpse of the lanterns, take the stairway up and wait in line, you will be very happy you went early.
... - the only negative is the location is a little challenging from some parts of Tokyo, but there are other activities nearby that should be combined to make sure this is in your to do list while visiting Tokyo
