Tokyu Hands is a wonderful place to shop! It has many floors, each with different sorts of items. It has reasonable prices and has a wide variety of products. It also has elevators, so it is handicap accessible.
What to buy: At Tokyu Hands, you can buy anything!
What to pay: How much you can expect to spend simply depends on what you are looking for... If you plan to browse throughout the entire store (or most of it) I would recommend bringing a lot of money since it has so many neat things.
This one is self-explanatory... It's The Disney Store! However, it is nothing like the Disney stores I have been to in the past. It has 3 floors, and the interior is indescribable! Naturally, it has anything and everything you could think of in the Disney theme, though I can not recall the prices of things.
Also, if you are interested in Tokyo Disneyland, tickets are sold on the third floor.
I had a ball in Shibuya! The fashion in this district is young and funky! Imagine skirts boot and tights! I shopped at a tower looking building named Shibuya 109, very interesting layout inside. There are lots more shops just outside the Hachikô Exit from the Shibuya station. Coffee places are plentiful and so are the people! I could of crossed the intersection in the photo a million times, it was like in the movies where u feel like you are standing still and life is moving at a very fast past all around.
What to buy: Tights, boots, skirts, funky jackets, lots of accessories and hats. The shops in Shibuya are for people in their 20's.
This cute tower had 10 floors of funky fashion for both guys and girls!
It is located close to Shibuya Train station and is open from 10am to 9pm daily!
What to buy: Skirts, jackets, hats, wallets, glasses, shoes, boots, tights, knee socks
there is a place called tansuya, and a place called nagamochiya. I was wondering the same thing, and then i made some friends from tokyo on myspace. just google those two companies and you should find something. they range from like 50 dollars to hundreds
Tokyu Hands is like Home Depot in US or Canadian Tyre in Canada. A hardware shop where you can find all kinds of tools and materials you need for building your house.
They also have shops in Shinjuku and Ikebukuro, but some say the one in Shibuya is the biggest.
You can find almost everything you need to build a house and decorate it the way you like. I always go there to look for ideas to improve my own house. In here you can always get some ideas how Japanese people live and how they deal with household problems in their everyday life.
Staff are pretty knowledgable about the section they are working in and are very helpful. Don't expect they could speak English though.
I always have endless ideas about things I could create with all the materials in the shop when I'm there. This is another place I could stay for a whole day.
