When I was in Tokyo I was amazed by how Japanese dress and all their stores. Tokyo is one of the top five fashion cities in the world and I understand why, after exploring the fashion scene. Tokyo is a big city with a lot of different areas for different shopping so you have to know where to get around and which small streets to explore.
I have made a Tokyo shopping guide for some of my favorite places I spotted during my trip:
Isetan shopping mall, is the Japanese version of Selfridges in London, Saks Fifth in New York, and Le Bon Marché in Paris. Isetan is the place in the world where they sell most shoes in the whole world. They have all brands you can imagine; from Chloé, Saint Laurent, to Kenzo, Comme de Garcons etc. Isetan I supported the statistics of Isetans shoe sales and bought a pair of Kenzo espadrilles.
I am wearing Diesel boots and dress from Raiine. Across Isetan is Louis Vuitton, Burberry and other luxury fashion houses. Further, Tokyo has many second-hand luxury stores where all products looks brand new. You can buy Chanel, Hermes, and other premium fashion brands where you get certificate and receipt for every purchase. Tokyo has taken second hand luxury vintage to a whole other level. BurberryUniqlo is a Japanese brand and they have many stores all over. One of the Uniqlo-boutiques I came across was this 6-floor store. Further, behind the Uniqlo, with entrance from the 2nd floor was “Dover Street Market” store, which is one of my absolute fashion boutiques.
Dover Street Market is a six-florr multibrand store with designers in all price-ranges. Above is the Comme de Garcons collection.
On Takeshita street is the street for “Harashuku girls” click here to see what I mean. The street offers a lot of funky and colorful stores wit outfits, candy stores, accessories, ice cream and more. It is definitely worth a visit to explore this street. Further is Harajuku street, which offers more luxury and international brands. Style Tokyo is another cool multibrand store that gathers a collection of various designers both locally and globally. The store also has a cafe which serves juices, coffee, and food.

“You cannot go to Tokyo without buying a kimono”, did one of the women that I was traveling with uttered to me – and I completely agree. I went to vintage stores to check out the different styles of kimonos and I also went to this store (above picture) “Ethic” and got inspired by the traditional Japanese kimonos. I bought a soft pink kimono with lotus flowers printed on it – I guess it cannot become more Japanese than that.
Isabel Marant has a beautiful store in the Harajuku area.
No.21 has an amazing store next door to Isabel Marant.
Anglobal Shop is another cool multibrand store in the Harajuku area.
I hope you can use some of my shopping ti
