I love traditional crafts and the comprehensive range of objects available was fantastic! There are incredibly expensive, but exquisite pieces as well as very affordable and unique pieces. A great place for gifts that are really made in Japan! Well worth a visit.

You may find something cheap there, but most of it, has its price. There are many different types of things, so it is quite lovely to stroll through the shop. Especially the wood works are pretty amazing and worth the price!

Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were
famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants,
bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of
Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the
area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot
to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art
Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art
