Tokyo Shopping Guide: Daikanyama, Part 1


Had enough of the bright lights, big city atmosphere of Shibuya and Shinjuku? Maybe it's time to explore the charming backstreets of Daikanyama (just 3 minutes by train from Shibuya). This is one of my favorite neighborhoods in Tokyo. You'll find great shops you won't come across anywhere else. I hope you enjoy the tour ...

1. Cocca: This is a gorgeous shop full of Japanese fabrics that you won't see in Nippori. Prices are around ¥1,800 per meter. On the second floor, you'll find vintage chairs and accessories. It's worth popping into this store just to check out the beautiful layout.

2. A: Earthy baskets, handmade ceramics, wooden utensils, ironware.
3. Aranzi Aronzo: Cute gift items, stationery, bags, postcards.

4. Cushu Cusyu: Modern furniture, cool lighting, mobiles, kitchenwares, well-designed toys.


5. Unico: You might have read my previous post about this store. I saw a lot of Southwestern style rugs and accessories, antique-inspired pendant lights, and their trademark Scandinavian/Japanese style furniture this time.

I hope you check back for Part 2. It only gets better!
