Where to Shop
• You don’t know the meaning of retail therapy until you’ve shopped at Tokyu Plaza Ginza. You’ll ind traditional crafts and souvenirs on 13 loors of shopping paradise, and the eighth and ninth loors are tax-free zones – score! Ginza has some of the best boutique stores and is a fashion mecca in Tokyo. If you’re an avid Hello Kitty fan there is an entire gift shop dedicated to her. You can also take time out to relax on the rooftop garden (Kiriko Lounge And Terrace).
• Be sure to pay Ginza Maison Hermès a visit if you’re in the area. There is an art gallery located on the top loor, with monthly exhibitions.
• You’ll ind a great selection of secondhand clothing at Kinji, and vintage highend brands at Ragtag in Harajuku.
• Shibuya Loft department store spans seven loors, and stocks lifestyle and stationery goods. The massive Uniqlo shop in Shibuya is also worth checking out.
