A January 2006 trip
to Tokyo by bostontravelgirl
Quote: If you're looking for a place to get all of your luxury shopping done in one place, Tokyo IS the place to go.
Omotesando: an avenue filled with shoppers, tourists, and the locals alike starts right out of Harajuku station. It has its own station (JR - Omotesando Station). This upscale shopping district boasts many large international fashion houses such as Gucci, Theory, YSL, Bottega Veneta among others. The newest addition to this luxury shopping district is the Omotesando Hills. Just opened this year (2006), this upscale shopping plaza houses over 130 shops and many chic cafes.
Roppongi: As a district known for wild nightlife and expatriates, tourists will be able to find many English-speaking bars and restaurants.
Shibuya: The apotheosis of young shopping district. Shibuya 109, one of the largest shopping complex for the young and hip is almost always crowded with fashionable teens.
Ginza: Another hot shopping spot located in Chuo Ward, attracts the sophisticated crowd of Tokyo. There are many department stores, cafes, and restaurant that will meet your styles and expectations. But, beware, as with most other stations, Ginza station can get VERY crowded.
