This is exactly what you expect when you think of wacky, anime, cute and fun Tokyo. Getting lost in the commercial underground of Tokyo Station is as cool as it gets in this city; you get to experience the daily hustle and bustle while exploring...More

We went here on a monday as most other places are closed. It was very busy and one of the very few places in Tokyo where people were rude!

This is in Tokyo station and is worth going to (the station in general) as there's a lot to do nearby and places to eat and of course you can go anywhere easily from here

Tokyo Station provides a nice service by way of grouping shops. Most of these I have never heard of but had to visit the Pokemon Shop since my kids grew p on that. Smaller than expected but still fun!

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this sport. Definitely purchased some of the best goods/souvenirs in the stores here. These included the NHK store, Hello Kitty, Studio Ghibli, the Kit Kat store, etc. Place was bustling, but never claustrophobic. Had very pretty cherry...More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
