These are our highlights from Tokyo:

  • Harajuku is known for its colorful street art and retail stores – filled with quirky vintage stores as well as high-end boutiques 
  • The Tsutaya T-site is in Daikanyama district. The store has an amazing collection of books which creates a library-like atmosphere. The store spreads across three interlinked buildings with a 55-meter-long aisle that cuts through the store. 
  • Lush Harajuku is the first Lush store in the world to offer only bath bombs, no other products – and many of the bath bombs at the store cannot be found elsewhere.
