    TSUKIJI FISH MARKET: TSUKIJI FISH MARKET

    by Onedragon Updated Dec 6, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is said that "Uogashi" or a riverside fish market dates back to the 16th century, the beginning of the Edo period. Tokugawa Ieyasu, the first Tokugawa shogun and builder of Edo as is now Tokyo, invited fishermen from Tsukudajima, Osaka and gave them a privilege for fishing in order to let them supply seafood to Edo Castle. The fishermen purveyed fish to the Castle and sold the remains near the Nihonbashi bridge.
    GREAT TO GET THERE EARLY AND SEE ALL THE GREAT FISH AND THE FRESHNESS AND WATCHING ALL THE CUSTOMERS SHOPPING TO THEIR CONTENTMENT!!! The Tsukiji fish market is located near the Tsukiji Shijou Station on the Oedo subway line and Tsukiji Station on the Hibiya subway line. There are two distinct sections of the market as a whole. The "inner market" (jonai shijo) is the licensed wholesale market, where the auctions and most of the processing of the fish take place, and where licensed wholesale dealers (approximately 900 of them) operate small stalls. The "outer market" (jogai shijo) is a mixture of wholesale and retail shops that sell Japanese kitchen tools, restaurant supplies, groceries, and seafood, and many restaurants, especially sushi restaurants. Most of the shops in the outer market close by the early afternoon, and in the inner market even earlier.

    What to buy: FISH..... FISH... FISH!!!!!!

    What to pay: 300 YEN ON UP !!!!

    Shimokitazawa: Edgey Second Hand Fashion

    by cgutierrez Written Nov 7, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Shimokitazawa is an area frequented by the college-age crowd. By walking around the densely populated shopping area, you'll notice the crowd here is stylish, but in a manner totally different from the typical fashions you'll find in Shinjuku, Shinbuya, Ginza or Harajuku. Most of the young adults here buy their clothes from the second hand clothing stores found all around this district and some may even modify their findings to suit their style.

    What to buy: Take a walk around and poke your head into a few of the second hand stores many are on the basement-level so keep a good eye out. Many stores will have their own specialties in the type of clothes they carry, but if you are open-minded you may be able to find something amazing. Observe the stylish people walking around the district to take some cues about how you can repurpose a second-hand buy into a fashion forward outfit.

    What to pay: Varies from store to store but is generally cheap or moderate

    SEIYU: SEIYU....FOOD

    by Onedragon Updated Aug 19, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    THE SEIYU THAT WAS CLOSE TO WHERE I STAYED WAS OPEN 24 HOURS AND WAS IN THE SAME BUILDING WITH DEPARTMENT STORES AND OTHER BUSINESSES....
    THE EASE OF SHOPPING AT THESE STORES IS GREAT FOR TRAVELERS AND SUPER FOR SAVING MONEY AND TIME BOTH IN COOKING THE FOOD AT YOUR PLACE OF STAY OR SAVING FROM EATING OUT AT A RESTAURANT ALL THE TIME..
    ALL THE SELECTION OF ANY SUPERMARKET...PLUS HERE THE FRESH BATTERED FISH AND THE DIFFERENT TEMPURES WERE FABULOUS IN TASE AND LOOKS.....
    THE FRESH DESERTS WERE DELICIOUS........
    IF IN JAPAN..FIND A "SEIYU" AND ENJOY THE FOOD....!!!!!!

    What to buy: ABOUT ANYTHING THAT AN APPETITE IN JAPAN WOULD WANT...

    What to pay: FROM 97 YEN ON UP .... ...???? ???? ??

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are many 100 Yen Shops at Tokyo which sell all their items at a relatively cheap price of 100 yen. These items are usually common daily items but it is worth to check them out, considering that Tokyo is an expensive city and this is a place where you can save some money.

    On Takao-san: Soba & Udon

    by Sharrie Written Apr 24, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: I bought these soba & udon for my parents.
    Not sure how it tasted since we haven't consumed them.
    But it's something quite special as it's long & the shop that sells them called it "Long-life Soba/Udon" which most people would love it for what it signifies.

    They are heavy & come with a soup base.
    Good souvenirs & cheap as well.
    Each packet costs about 550 yen.

    Long life ;-)

    Soba & Udon

    by Sharrie Written Apr 20, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: Well, I love soba.
    Not that I've to buy it from Tokyo since I can find them in the city I live.
    For some, it's interesting just to find out the variety of soba & udon that's available in Japan.

    In fact, shopping in Tokyo is heavenly as far as I'm concerned.
    The shoppers are bombarded with huge choices. As long as you've enough $$$, no problem.

    I remembered once walking into the stationery department & can't believe what I saw! More than 200 types & designs of pencils & pens! Imagine that!
    & each departmental stores have different batch of goods!!!
    Just too awesome for words!

    All the noodles you can eat!

    Matsuya in Ginza: Green Tea!

    by Sharrie Written Apr 20, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: There are some people who love Green Tea as much as others who love brandy! My dad is one of them.

    Ok, I'm told to buy green tea from Ginza.
    Most expensive type.
    How expensive?

    The most expensive can is 230 gram for 10,500 yen (US$100).
    & I ended buying 4 cans of them!
    Now, I'm broke!!!

    Testing... but not the most expensive ones!

    Electronics & Games

    by Sharrie Written Apr 20, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: You name it, they have it.
    Sometimes, I just love to browse & window-shop in Akihabara, Ikebukuro & Shinjuku for electronics.
    The variety of designs & goods in this city is just beyond your imagination.

    Anything you can think of, if you can't find it in Tokyo, chances are you can't find it elsewhere in the world.

    & now, even the cellphones are comparable to those used in Europe & Asia. So, go & grab some!!!

    Unbelievable!!!

    Remember your credit cards!!!

    Uniqlo: Simplicity: cheap buys

    by yumiyun Written Dec 11, 2003

    Uniqlo may be a passing trend in Japan now, but is definitely a good place to pick a few clothes - especially when your budget is tight. You will find Uniqlo products quite simple - single color, no patterns kind of clothes. Quality is pretty good - for winter, you can get fleece and even cashmire in more than reasonable price. There are men's and women's clothes.

    What to pay: You can get a sweat shirt for 1000yen.

    Visit Sensoji in Asakusa and take a look at typical Japanese souveniors. The narrow lane leading from the gate to the Kannon temple is filled with small shops selling traditional Japanese goods, snacks and more. Definitely a great place to shop for souveniors from Japan.
