Shibuya Hikarie ShinQs went through a store renewal in September of 2015. They increased the amount of stores selling "MADE IN JAPAN" items and the whole shopping area was reborn as an appealing facility to both travelers and Japanese customers.

In this article, we will introduce to you five select stores where you can buy refined, high-quality items that are made in Japan.

1. Cosmetics from Kyoto at Yojiya Cosmetics

Yojiya Cosmetics is a cosmetics brand originating in Kyoto, created in 1904. Starting with its billboard product, the "oil blotting paper", they carry skincare products made with organic ingredients such as lipstick in Japan's natural colors, traditional cosmetic goods, and more.

Most of the Yojiya stores are centered in the Kyoto area. Being able to purchase Yojiya products at Shibuya Hikarie ShinQs is a great opportunity, so we warmly recommend the shop.

Yojiya's billboard product, the "oil blotting paper" (5 packs for 1,760 yen including tax). Using special Japanese paper made through a strict selection process, this blotting paper is highly appealing for its remarkable absorption strength and for how soft it feels against the skin. It's the favorite of many Japanese women because of its high quality.

Right next door there is a cafe run by Yojiya. In addition to the "Yojiya Special Cappuccino" with their logo mark, they offer food and drinks that have good effects on your health and beauty.

2. Everything Cool about Japan - Katakana

By just looking at the containers made in Japan, at the leather goods, toys, hand towels, and the many other products in the store, you will find yourself in a fun mood. Items with designs of Mt. Fuji and sumo wrestling seem to be especially popular among travelers.
