Tokyo Shopping Guide: Passport

We stumbled across Passport on our first trip to Japan and it was so cute it’s been a firm favourite on all our return trips. It always has great displays of kawaii pillows, plush and homeware that are impossible to resist!

Since pillows are a great thing to have around in your hotel and on the flight home, I often indulge, bringing home an onigiri rice ball on my first trip and a Fuku Fuku Nyanko cat this year. They’re always great quality and my onigiri is still going strong after ten years.

Halloween Tofu

It’s also one of the few places you can find Hannari Tofu, which come in lots of different sizes and flavours. If you’re lucky, you might spot some fun seasonal designs like these amazing Halloween witches from 2008.

The homeware is adorable too with lots of cute characters that I think are designed in-house. The Fuku Fuku Nyanko cats were new on my most recent trip, available as everything from plushies to clocks! I settled for a towel which is adding some extra cute to my bathroom.

If you’re looking to make your home more kawaii then Passport is a great place to start, with lots of things you won’t see anywhere else, or online. My home is definitely all the cuter for my visits there.

How to get there

The only branch I’ve visited is at the ALTA mall inside Sunshine City near Ikebukuro station. Thanks to the Fuku Fuku Nyanko range, I’ve finally tracked down their website (Passport is a terrible name for web searches!) and there are hundreds more branches in the Tokyo suburbs and across Japan.

The main item that’s also available separately is my first enamel pin featuring Mt Fuji! It’s perfect for anyone who loves Japan as much as I do and great for decorating your coat and bag or just for hoarding in a collection. Each pin is made from shiny hard enamel with a rubber clutch to keep it safe and costs £7.

They turned out so cute and I can’t wait to see your photos of them out and about. If you’d like to see more surprise boxes and enamel pins from me in future, please spread the word!
