This list of the best shopping experiences in Tokyo emphasises how impressive this city is. Walk into any Tokyo shop and you’ll hear “irasshaimase” (a big welcome). One of the most exciting and diverse metropolises in the world, Tokyo presents a treasure trove of unique shopping opportunities. Traditional arts and craft stores stand next to shops brimming with contemporary and imported items; the tiniest family-run businesses compete with the huge national chains.

Generally, each area of Tokyo specialises in a particular form of shopping, whether it be fashion, electronics or interior decoration, however each district presents an interesting array of boutiques, speciality shops and larger department stores awaiting exploration.
