Shopping in Tokyo: Your Five Quick and Easy Shopaholic Go-to Places
It’s not always food trips, Mt. Fuji, and Samurai experiences in Japan. A lot of times, especially if you are really into enjoying the local culture in Japan, it’s about shopping spree. No excuses, no limits, just pure bliss when it comes to finding cool stuff, fun stuff, and amazing treats that can only be found in Japan. Even if there aren’t any English translations in the products, and even if you don’t need a certain item, for as long as you have that gut-level feeling that you want to purchase it, why not – Japan is known to a lot of us to being a place of quality and excellence, when it comes to their products – and these places over here are where you’ll find the good product finds, especially if you’re visiting Japan for one of your travels. Prepare your credit cards and now it’s time to do a bit of non-window shopping.

Ginza
With its procession of fancy designer stores and luxury kimono dealers, Ginza has always upheld its reputation as the ritzy shopping district of Tokyo. But look beyond the gilded shops and you’ll also find some of the city’s best restaurants and cocktail bars (though many of them feature prices as high as the neighbourhood’s skyscrapers). While most people visit the area during the day, there’s certainly a lot you can do in Ginza at night, when the shops have closed and the tour bus crowds have left.

Akihabara
Akihabara (秋葉原), also called Akiba after a former local shrine, is a district in central Tokyo that is famous for its many electronics shops.
