Shop the Globe: Tokyo
A trip to Tokyo can sometimes feel like a step into the future, and that extends to shopping.

At the same time, shopping in Tokyo provides an opportunity to witness timeless Japanese craftsmanship. Writer Erin Bogar selects shopping experiences that are also introductions to the country’s culture, from temple markets to the food halls of department stores.
