Hit the shops and boutiques of Tokyo


Looking for original souvenirs from your stay in Tokyo? You can mix errands with pleasure as you browse eye-catching objects and clothes while exploring the Tokyo's neighborhoods.

Every neighborhood in Tokyo has a unique atmosphere. If you're interested in technology, then head to the Akihabara district. As the epicenter of otaku culture, this area is brimming with boutiques carrying video games, vintage magnetoscopes, manga, and all kinds of anime-related merchandise.

If you're more "chic" than geek, then follow Tokyo's fashionistas straight to the Shibuya district, where designer boutiques, many of them pop-ups, will tempt you with one-of-a-kind accessories.

Harajuku, however, remains the most revered destination for fashion lovers. Its narrow streets are teeming with clothing stores, which range from kawaii (cute) to punk. It's also where you'll see the most original and mind-blowing outfits, proudly worn by the capital's trendiest people.

Shimokitazawa is a quieter, less famous neighborhood with a youthful, creative ambiance, where you can find fantastic vintage stores nestled between artisan stalls. It's also a great place to unwind with a nice cup of coffee after a day of shopping.
