Japan Things to Do: 736 reviews and 1,308 photos


Go to the departmental stores (another term for the mall) & there are many of them, each offering different items of the same range of products. You're guaranteed a very good time even if you just window-shop; the biggest is a 13-storey building called Seibu in Ikebukuro in Tokyo!

Alternatively go to Shinjuku or Roppongi for the trendy. Check out what's the latest craze in Japan!
