With only half a day to shop in Ginza, where can I go with a husband who only shops for essentials, 2 daughters who like stationery and a family friend who doesn’t mind anything?
Located at the Yaesu exit of the Tokyo Station is 3 floors of stores known as First Avenue Tokyo Station. What interests me is the Tokyo Okashi Land (B1, Yaesu Underground Central Gate, 9am -9pm) and Tokyo Character Street (B1, North Street, 10am – 8.30pm).
Tokyo Okashi Land is operated by 3 Japanese snack companies – Glico, Morinaga and Calbee. I’m looking forward to try freshly fried Calbee potato chips with soft serve ice-cream and fudge.
Tokyo Character Street has 26 character themed stores. Top 3 stores to check out – Donguri Republic for Studio Ghibli products from shows like Spirited Away, Rilakkuma for Sentimental Circus products and Moomin.
Will everyone have a 满载而归 (fruitful) shopping experience?
