What you'll do

Join an insightful host and get ready to discover Tokyo’s most unique stores! From the gadgets and collectibles of geeky Akihabara, or the bric-a-brac of 100-yen shops (no prizes for guessing why they’re called that), this isn’t shopping as you know it back home. Delve into the weird and wonderful stores of Harajuku, the epicenter of Tokyo’s youth culture, and experience the most out-there fashion on Takeshita-Dori, the street known for its myriad boutiques. Deeper into the city, you could browse traditional curios in Sangenjaya, Tokyo’s hippest neighborhood, or discover hidden gems in bohemian Shimokitazawa, where thrift shopping thrives and you could pick up a vintage kimono at the same time as a stash of vinyl!
