Tokyo Shopping Tips by conark
Tokyo Shopping: 206 reviews and 300 photos
I've been living 10 minutes away from what some consider the major entry point into Tokyo from Chiba and Saitama, Kitasenju. It's a wonderful little town with the recent addition of the Marui department store adjacent to the Lumine department store and Kitasenju train station. Lumine, I believe, has been an addition from the past few years so it's quite new and clean, with little clothes boutiques, a nice market downstairs, a Sony plaza, DVD/record shop, and a great eating area upstairs. Also, it's conveniently attached to the train station so you don't have to go outside to enter. Next to that you have Marui which has been opened since Feb of 2004. It's a slightly more upscale department store which favors teens as demonstrated by the hip clothing (including a Gap). The place boast a Virgin record store, Tokyu Hands, Kinokuniya book store, an international market, a cheap and expensive food course down and upstairs respectfully and various other goods.
What to buy: try the restaurants from either department store. my recommendations are Tapas Tapas, Kokan Soba shop and another Chinese shop in Lumine. Also, check out the import stores. Both have one (at least).
