Six Stories of Japanese ToysThis six-floor toy store offers items for every interest and age featuring characters from cute (Miffy) to subjectively less cute (Darth Vader), and includes toys, plushies, wallets, purses, hair bangles, socks, umbrellas, and everything in between. Well-known U.S.-based TV shows like Adventure Time have petite sections, but the store is particularly fascinating for its well-curated selection of more offbeat merchandise.
Buy a giant Catbus or Totoro, a miniature kit to reproduce a Japanese storefront, a hot-dog keychain, and skin-enhancing face masks that make you look like a cat, a geisha, or a very elderly woman (my favorite). Another favorite: The Miffy-emblazoned “Petomato” package is a pet, and a tomato -- but mostly a tomato-growing kit.
Don’t miss the extremely travel-friendly Nanoblox kits; like Lego, but with smaller pieces and in a wide selection of options, including Pokemon characters and ornate, complicated temples.
Another travel-friendly score: Star Wars light-up chopsticks. Bring your passport, as purchases of over 5,000 yen are tax-free.
