Tokyo Shopping Guide

Tokyo Shopping Guide

I have visited Japan three times now and each time I’ve researched an exhaustive itinerary of cute, crafty and creative places to visit. You’ll find individual posts on my favourite shops and sights, plus a guide to the main areas of Tokyo. After my most recent trip, I’ve added a few places in Osaka and Kyoto too.

You’ll also find links to other blogs, guides and trip reports, plus resources, maps and more. I hope you find it useful in planning your own trip! Make sure you check the Japan section of my blog too, for regular posts as I plan my next trip to Japan in May 2016!
