Japan Shopping


Shopping is one of the copious things to do in Japan. Tokyo and Yokohama has widespread shopping arenas for electronic items. Kobe and Kyoto are known for their cloth merchants. Osaka and Fukuoka are famous for markets exhibiting finest ethnic Japanese handiworks. It is here that entrenched Japanese shops and famed brand names like Gucci, Chanel, Armani, Louis Vuitton, and others stand side by side on the different blocks that make up the center of the Ginza shopping area. Tokyo also serves as a center of artistic creativity as art galleries and purely Japanese modern architecture are evident throughout the city. Ranging from the shopping colossal malls of Roppongi Hills and Giza districts of Tokyo to packed sidewalk and subversive markets hawking black-market DVD's and ersatz designer jeans, to the genuine designer boutiques in high rising sky-scrappers, you are sure to enjoy shopping in Japan.
