Tokyo Shopping

Fodor's Review

This world-renowned entertainment and shopping district dates back to the Edo period (1603–1868), when it consisted of long, willow-lined avenues. The willows have long since gone, and the streets are now lined with department stores and boutiques. The exclusive shops in this area—including flagship stores for major jewelers like Tiffany & Co., Harry Winston, and Mikimoto—sell quality merchandise at high prices. Now many affordable fashion and goods chains have built towers in the area creating a mix of high- and lowbrow style that defines modern Tokyo's taste. On Sunday the main strip of Chuo-dori is closed to car traffic and umbrella-covered tables dot the pavement; it's a great place for shoppers to rest their weary feet.
