“I want to buy an authentic Japanese souvenir!”
“I want to get something I can’t find anywhere else before I leave!”
If this sounds like you, then why not pay a visit to a department store? Department stores are where you will not only find products made in Japan, but also famous brands of sweets and even traditional handicrafts; they are simply the best place to find items that are only available in Japan.
Beyond their incredible selection of products, they also have great services too. For example Shinjuku Takashimaya, located right by JR Shinjuku Station, offers discounts, free delivery, interpretation assistance and many other convenient services to its international customers. Whether you’re looking for souvenirs for friends and family, or even looking to treat yourself to something nice, you’ll find everything you could want here!
It’s also easy to reach - if you are on any of the JR lines, head out of either the New South Exit or the Miraina Tower ticket gate and you’re practically there. And, as it is also nearby Busta Shinjuku, Shinjuku Takashimaya is also very convenient for those who have taken the highway bus from the airports to stop and shop at too.
